average velocity means the total displacement divided by the total time taken.

this is different from the average speed as velocity is a vector.  when we take average we need to take into account the directions of velocity at different times.

if an object travels for time t1  with a uniform velocity   and for time t2  with a uniform velocity  of     then  the average velocity  is

if a person travels for  1 hour  covering a distance of 10 km in a straightline towards the North and then returns along the same straight line after 1 hour,  then

v1 vector is 10kmph  towards North.
v2 vector is  10 km ph towards South.
average velocity is  0.

Average velocity is the net displacement divided by the time interval.
