Difference between speed and velocity?

Speed is a scalar and velocity is a vector.. A scalar only has magnitude while a vector has magnitude and direction.. Example: If you are traveling north at 65 miles an hour

Velocity differs from speed in that velocity indicates?

Velocity is a vector quantity, which means that a body's speed and direction are both required to define it.. They are different because: Speed is the rate of change of dist

How is speed different from velocity?

Velocity has a direction component. Speed: 3 ft/s Velocity: 3 ft/s NNW Speed does not have the direction associated with it, like velocity does.

How are velocity and speed different?

Speed is the distance travelled in a given period of time and is measured in metres per second or miles per hour (ie 'distance' per 'unit of time' ). It is always a positiv

How do speed and velocity differ?

When a direction is specified, it is called velocity. When the direction is not specified, it is called a speed. (That's the difference between a vector and a scalar.)

What is the difference of the speed and the velocity?

Speed is a scalar quantity, and just has a magnitude (i.e. you may travel in any direction), while velocity is a vector, and requires a direction (e.g. the difference between
In Energy

What does speed and velocity differ from?

Speed gives you information about how fast something is going (it is scalar), on the other hand velocity is a vector and gives you directional information also, for example if
