WHAT DOES INSTANTANEOUS SPEED MEAN IN ENGLISH?

instantaneous speed

Speed

In everyday use and in kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity; it is thus a scalar quantity. The average speed of an object in an interval of time is the distance travelled by the object divided by the duration of the interval; the instantaneous speed is the limit of the average speed as the duration of the time interval approaches zero. Like velocity, speed has the dimensions of a length divided by a time; the SI unit of speed is the metre per second, but the most usual unit of speed in everyday usage is the kilometre per hour or, in the US and the UK, miles per hour. For air and marine travel the knot is commonly used. The fastest possible speed at which energy or information can travel, according to special relativity, is the speed of light in a vacuum c = 299792458 metres per second. Matter cannot quite reach the speed of light, as this would require an infinite amount of energy. In relativity physics, the concept of rapidity replaces the classical idea of speed.

Definition of instantaneous speed in the English dictionary

The definition of instantaneous speed in the dictionary is a scalar measure of the rate of movement of a body expressed as the rate of change of position with respect to time at a particular point. It is measured in metres per second, miles per hour, etc.
