# Statistics About The Average Speed Vs Average Velocity

## Statistic 1

"The average speed of a car in the USA is approximately 25 miles per hour."

## Statistic 2

"If an object moves in the east direction for 50 m and comes back to the original position, the average speed is 100 m / total time,[ Twice the Distance] but the average velocity is zero, as displacement is zero."

## Statistic 3

"On an average, humans walk at a speed of 3-4 miles/hour but the average velocity could reduce to zero when they walk and return back to their starting point."

## Statistic 4

"The average speed on US freeways was reported to be 70.6 mph in 2019."

## Statistic 5

"A commercial Jet's average speed is about 575 mph, but its average velocity can vary significantly based on wind, direction, and delays."

## Statistic 6

"The fastest recorded human running speed is 27.8 mph, while the average velocity considering a curved running track decreases."

## Statistic 7

"The speed of sound is an average of 767 mph but its velocity changes with direction, altitude, and temperature changes."

## Statistic 8

"On a round trip, even if you travel with high average speed the average velocity will always be zero."

## Statistic 9

"The average speed of an orbiting space shuttle is approximately 17,500 miles per hour, but the velocity involves direction and would vary."

## Statistic 10

"Long-distance commercial drivers drive at average speeds of 55 - 60 mph, but the velocity changes with the direction of the route."

## Statistic 11

"Light travels at an average speed of approximately 186,282 miles per second, but Velocity varies due to refraction."

## Statistic 12

"If a body returns to the position from where it started, the average velocity will be zero irrespective of the path and speed."

## Statistic 13

"The average speed of a bicycle is 9.6 km/h, but its velocity is determined by its direction."

## Statistic 14

"Average speed considers the time taken for the total distance, while the average velocity considers the time taken for the displacement."

## Statistic 15

"Winds across the globe on average, have a speed of around 6.8 to 7.6 meters per second. The speed is constant but the velocity factors in wind direction changes."

## Statistic 16

"Ocean currents on average move at 5.6 km/hour. The average speed doesn't change; however, the velocity changes with the direction of the current."

## Statistic 17

"The average speed of a hummingbird's wing beats is 80 beats per second, but its velocity varies as it hovers in different directions."

## Statistic 18

"The average speed of an F1 car is 220mph, but velocity depends upon the track and direction of motion."

## Statistic 19

"Average speed of a bullet fired is about 1700 miles per hour, meanwhile the velocity changes due to wind, gravity and direction of shooting."
