same speed , coz velocity is constant velocity consists of speed and direction...

Velocity is a vector quantity. That means it has direction and magnitude. Speed is a scalar quantity, it only has magnitude. It is possible to have constant speed and constant velocity but it is also possible to have constant speed but changing velocity if the object is changing direction.

Constant velocity has speed always constant along the direction with respect to time. Variable velocity changes its speed with respect to time. Constant velocity has zero acceleration. Variable velocity has non-zero acceleration . An object moving at a constant velocity maintains both the same speed and direction. An object moving at a variable velocity can be changing speed or direction of travel or both.

Constant speed is movement at a fixed (constant) distance per unit of time. The same amount of distance is covered by the object in the same amount of time at each measurement of that same interval. An example of an object moving at a constant speed might be an object in orbit. Something up their above the drag of the atmosphere will move at a constant speed, and will continuously move around the earth at the same speed. Note that velocity is speed with a direction vector. An object in orbit will have a constant speed, but its velocity will be constantly changing because it is constantly changing the direction it is moving.

Of course, since velocity is a vector quantity and speed is a scalar quantity, velocity has something speed does not: direction. Thus, an object can travel at the same speed by has a changing direction of movement, and therefore a changing velocity. For instance, a ball on a string moving in a circle at the same speed is constantly changing its velocity, which results in its path of motion.Yes. Velocity is (speed and direction of motion). If direction changes, then velocitychanges, even if speed is constant.Examples:-- Car going around a curve at a constant speed has changing velocity.-- Anything traveling a circular path at a constant speed has changing velocity.

Objects moving in uniform circular motion will have a constant speed, and two objects with the same acceleration have a constant velocity.

Velocity includes both speed and direction, so velocity will change when an object changes direction while maintaining it's speed. An example is a car at constant speed around a curve.

Yes. In order for an object's velocity to be constant, its speed and direction of motion must both be constant. An object moving in a circle, for example, has varying velocity, even if its speed is constant. This situation is known as "uniform circular motion," and the acceleration in this case is called "centripetal [center-seeking] acceleration."

If the sum of all forces on an object is zero, then the object remains in constant velocity. Constant velocity means motion in a straight line at a constant speed. "Rest" is just constant velocity with a speed of zero. If the sum of all forces on an object is NOT zero, then the object's velocity must change. The change may consist of speeding up, slowing down, or turning in a different direction. If the sum of the forces is in the same direction as the object's motion, then the object must speed up.

constant velocity means the speed and direction are the same.

No, they are not the same! Velocity involves the speed and the direction of the moving object...

If the sum of all forces on an object is zero, then the object remains in constant, uniform motion. 'Constant uniform motion' means motion in a straight line at a constant speed. The physical description of such motion is "constant velocity". "Rest" is just constant velocity with a speed of zero. If the sum of all forces on an object is NOT zero, then the object's velocity must change. The change may consist of speeding up, slowing down, or turning in a different direction. If the sum of the forces is in the same direction as the object's motion, then the object must speed up.

Velocity is a measure of the speed of an object that is moving in a specific direction.Imagine walking across the room. If you walk in the same direction and do not change speed, your velocity remains constant until you stop moving. If you keep a constant speed, but change direction while walking, your velocity changes. If you walk in the same direction but slow down and speed up while walking, your velocity changes. Velocity is a vector quantity that describes the speed and direction that an object is moving. It is the same as "speed" except that it includes the direction of the object as well. Speed is the rate of change of distance.In common language, velocity is often used imprecisely to mean "speed".

If the velocity is constant there is no acceleration. Speed is not velocity, velocity has speed and direction. I A car going around a circular track at 60 mph keeps the same speed but changes direction and thus accelerates at a constant speed. Velocity is speed in a certain direction. So change the speed but keep direction the same and you change the velocity. or Change the direction while keeping the speed the same and you change the velocity. If the speed is constant, any change of direction is a change in velocity. Driving around in a circle is a case of constantly changing direction.

Such an object is said to travel at a constant speed. If it doesn't change direction, it is also said to travel at constant velocity.

Answer: yes velocity because velocity is traveling in the same direction at the same speed so yes it is traveling in a straight line

Yes. If an object is moving at a constant speed the average speed and the constant speed are the same.

Momentum. If an object has constant velocity, the object will move because it has momentum. Momentum tends to stay the same unless changed by a force.

The velocity does not change direction or magnitude. The object 1) may not be moving, or it 2) may be moving at a constant velocity. In the case of the latter, that means it's moving in the same direction and at a constant speed.

It's not. If you speed is constant (but not zero), then your velocity won't be zero, either.You may be confusing this with the following: If your VELOCITY (not your speed) is constant, then your ACCELERATION is zero. Acceleration refers to how quickly velocity changes, so if velocity doesn't change at all, acceleration is zero.

It means that the velocity doesn't change over time. It's speed is always the same, and it moves in a straight line.
