**Instantaneous Speed**. When the

**speed**of an object is constantly changing, the

**instantaneous speed**is the

**speed**of an object at a particular moment (instant) in time. Constant

**speed**. The rate of change of position in which the same distance is traveled each second.

Consequently, what is the formula of instantaneous speed?

To calculate **instantaneous speed**, we need to divide part of the total distance traveled by time. However, we don't want to use the distance of the entire trip, because that will give us average **speed**.

Additionally, what's the difference between average and instantaneous speed? constant **speed** is where the **speed** is the same throughout and **instantaneous speed** is **speed** given at any moment and **average speed** is a total distance traveled divided by the amount of time it took to travel it.

Similarly, it is asked, what is an example of an instantaneous speed?

Sometimes it **speeds** up and sometimes slows down. At a given instant time what we read from the speedometer is **instantaneous speed**. For **example**, a car moving with a constant **speed** travels to another city, it must stop at red lights in the traffic, or it should slow down when unwanted situations occur in the road.

What is instantaneous acceleration quizlet?

**instantaneous acceleration**. rate at which velocity changes at a specific instant in time. a=(v-v_0)/t=Δv/Δt. a is the average **acceleration**. Δv is the change in velocity.
