# How does velocity differ from speed?

Velocity indicates direction in addition to speed.

# 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.)

# The is the difference between speed and velocity?

Not really, they are basically the same

# What is the difference between speed and velocity is that velocity?

Velocity is speed and its direction. "30 miles per hour" is a speed. "30 miles per hour north" is a velocity". "30 miles per hour north" and "30 miles per hour south" areiden

# How is velocity and speed differant?

velocity being a vector quantity has both direction and magnitude but speed being a scalar quantity has only magnitude .

# What is different between speed and velocity?

speed is scalar while velocity is a vector. In other words, velocity is to do with direction also. Speed does not show direction.

# 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

# What the different between velocity and speed?

velocity is measured in relation to a certain spot on earth or a space, whether its moving or not. Speed is measured in relation to the earth.

# 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

# What is the definition of velocity and how is it different from speed?

Velocity tells the speed and also the direction. "30 miles per hour north" and "30 miles per hour west" are the same speed but different velocities.

# What the difference between speed and velocity is?

Speed is just a magnitude (25 m/s), which is known as a scalar value. Velocity, however, is a magnitude with a direction (25 m/s East), which is known as a vector value.
