We are looking for EXACT speed at that moment, so the average speed is of no help or it should be constant speed.

I. James covered the 64 kilometres between Inn A and Inn B in 1 hour and 4 minutes
We will get average speed during this stretch

II. James covered the 32 kilometres between Inn B and Inn C in 32 minutes
We will get average speed during this stretch

We cannot find the exact speed at some moment in the trip ..

Hi,
What keywords should we look for,in questions of similar type, which indicate whether we have to find average or instantaneous speed?
Thanks
