# Under what condition is the magnitude of average velocity of an object equal to it's average speed?

• -4
The magnitude of average velocity of an object equals to its average speed when
1. Magnitude of distance covered is equal to the magnitude of displacement.
2. The motion of the object is in a straight line i.e. in a particular direction.

Thnx. Ishan..!

This is possible in case of an uniform motion and also if the object moves in a straight line such that the direction of the different velocities are same and the displacement is equal to the distance covered.

• -4

We know that average speed = Total distance/Total time

and, average velocity = Total displacement/Total time

Magnitude of average velocity and average speed of a moving object is equal only if the object moves in a straight line and in such case the magnitude of displacement is equal to the distance travelled by the body.

Average velocity = displacement/time

Average speed = total distance/time

so if displacement of the body equals to the distance covered in the same time interval then Average speed will be equal to the velocity.

Why does Ishan Goyal send so many answers for 1 questain?

• -5

what s ur prob its his wish

• -4  If the total distance covered by an object is the same as its displacement, then its average speed would be equal to its average velocity.

Hope this helped!!
