Question

We have carefully distinguished between average speed and magnitude of average velocity. No such distinction is necessary when we consider instantaneous speed and magnitude of velocity. The instantaneous speed is always equal to the magnitude of instantaneous velocity. Why?


Solution

The instantaneous speed is always equal to the magnitude of the instantaneous velocity because for very small instants of time the length of the path is equal to the magnitude of displacement.
