How to find average velocity (calculus)?


The average velocity is the rate at which an object changes its position over a given time. Simple calculations take the distance covered divided by the time taken to do so. With calculus, this value is arrived at by calculating the slope of the secant line rather than the tangent line. A secant line intersects a curve at two distinct points on the minimum (they could be more).
