# What is the difference between speed and acceleration?

Speed is the measurement of how fast your location is changing. It is the scalar value of velocity, which is speed in a given direction. Velocity can change without a chang

# What is the difference between speed velocity and acceleration?

Speed is the rate of change in distance, whereas velocity is speed and direction of travel. Acceleration is the change in velocity (including direction).

# How are speed velocity and acceleration different?

Velocity is a vector, meaning that it has a direction. When it is being expressed, the direction is given with it (e.g. 5m/s NW). Speed is a scalar, not a vector, so it doe

# How are acceleration different from speed?

Acceleration is speed with a time, ex. 15 mph/hour, 150 km/sec/sec.

# What is the difference between speed acceleration and velocity?

Speed is the measure of distance covered in specific time - 7 metres in 2 seconds or 45 kilometres in 1 hour Acceleration is the change in velocity Acceleration is measure

# How are constant speed and constant acceleration different?

There is a huge difference between constant speed and constant acceleration. Constant speed is when the object is travelling constant, no change in its velocity and accelerati

# What is the difference between instantaneous speed average speed and acceleration?

Instantaneous speed: The speed at which I'm moving right now, this instant. Average speed: (The distance I covered during some period of time) divided by (the length of time)

# Causes objects to fall with different accelerations and speeds?

gravity, drag, if an object has a high mass number it falls quicker and if it has a large surface area it falls slower. Think about it this way, if you throw a parachute unope

# What are the differences between acceleration speed and velocity?

Acceleration is the change in velocity. That is, if you're going faster, you're accelerating in the positive direction. If you're going slower, you're accelerating in the nega

# How are acceleration and speed different?

Well speed and acceleration are very different but can be related. Speed is how fast something is going, like 60 miles per hour. Acceleration on the other hand is how fast an

# How is a graph showing speed different from a graph showing acceleration?

Acceleration is how fast you get up to speed.

# How does a graph slowing speed differ from a graph showing acceleration?

Yes. One shows speed and the other shows acceleration. The variables are usually plotted against time but that need not be the case. They could be plotted against displacement

# Is speed different from acceleration?

Speed is how fast you can go, acceleration is how long/short it takes to speed up
In Math and Arithmetic

# How is a speed graph different from an acceleration graph?

A speed graph measures the distance devided over time. Acceleration graph measures the change in speed over time.
In Physics

# What is the differences between speed velocity and acceleration?

Velocity is the speed that an object travels at, e.g. metres per second Acceleration is the change in speed over time ('speeding up' or 'slowing down'), eg. metres per second

# What is the difference between speed and acceleration in phisycs?

Speed - is something moving at a constant rate. Acceleration is anincrease of the rate an object is moving.
In Physics

# What is the difference between constant speed and constant acceleration?

Constant speed means that speed doesn't change. Constant acceleration means that acceleration doesn't change. (If the acceleration is anything but zero, speed WILL change.)
