speed is a scalar and velocity a vector. Yes, they have equal speeds in the direction of the vector. If you run up a hill at 10 mph the speed and velocity in the direction up hill are the same, but the horizontal speed and vertical speed are different.

Yes. Just have them move in different directions.

Compare how two objects moving at the same speed could have different velocities?

Velocity is a vector; to specify velocity, you indicate a speed (a magnitude), and a direction. If two objects move in different directions, their velocities will be different, even if their speeds are the same.Velocity is a vector; to specify velocity, you indicate a speed (a magnitude), and a direction.

How does air resistance affect the velocity of falling objects?

Slows an object down or speeds one up.


Can you consider earth as having a uniform velocity?

No. Earth's rotational velocity is slowing. Do you mean the velocity of Earth's revolution around the sun? The earth speeds up in its orbit until it reaches perihelion, and then slows until it reaches aphelion.


What causes air friction?

Air friction is an example of fluid friction that is velocity dependent. It is caused by objects moving at high speeds through the air, and the air resisting it.


State the ways velocity can change?

the velocity of an object changes when it speeds up or slows down.


How do you find the average velocity if there are two different speeds?

We sum the two different speeds and devided by two


What is Accelerator?

Something that accelerates. It may refer to a particle accelerator - something that makes subatomic particles move at very high speeds.


Two gliders having the same mass and speeds move toward each other on an air track and stick together After the collision the velocity of the gliders is?

Zero.


Why do objects fall at different speeds?

Air resistance


As kinetic energy increases what happens to mass and velocity?

it speeds up


Why do objects fall at difrent speeds?

"They've got different masses..." mass has no affect on the speed at which objects fall, objects fall at different speeds based on the drag created as they fall through air.


Why does objects fall in different speeds?

all objects fall at the same speed because i like ponies


When an object speeds up does it gain momentum?

Yes The equation for momentum is mass x velocity So if you increase velocity the momentum increases


If a moving object speeds up in what direction is the acceleration?

The acceleration is the same direction of the velocity


What is the difference between stream deposition and changing running water velocity?

Speeds up


What is true when the velocity and the acceleration of an object are in the same direction?

In that case, the object speeds up.


Can two objects have a different speed but the same velocity?

No. Speed is the magnitude of the velocity vector. If velocities are the same, their magnitudes are the same, which is another way of saying that the speeds are the same.It can work the other way around, however ... same speed but different velocities, meaning same speed in different directions.


Why are car crashes more dangerous at higher speeds than a lower speeds?

Because at higher speeds you have more velocity than at lower speeds transferring more energy to make a bigger crashing causing more damage.


What causes objects to fall at different speeds?

Air resistance. If there were no air all objects would fall at the same speed.


Why convergent divergent Nozzle used in steam turbine?

Convergent-divergent nozzles have the ability over convergent of raising the velocity to supersonic speeds whereas the convergent maximum velocity on exit is sonic. These speeds are beneficial to steam turbine efficiency. Kev Calvert


How could an object have a constant speed but a changing velocity?

it speeds up so fast it errupts into a flame.


Do two cars with the same velocity have the same speed?

Yes, but not the other way round. If the two cars have the same velocity, both their speeds and the directions in which they move will be the same.


Can velocity be zero?

In theory, yes, if an object is static it's velocity is zero. In practice, however, velocity of an object can only truly be determined in relation to at least one other object, so if only two objects are taken into account, there is no way to determine which one is moving and which one is static (or if they are moving in parallel, if both are moving, but at different speeds). When you start considering larger groups of objects (up to and including the entire universe itself) it would be impossible to find out from within the system whether or not the entire system is moving. Short version - yes, velocity can be zero, but it's impossible to tell for sure.


What is the top speed of the Velocity the worlds fastest RC Car?

The Velocity can reach speeds of 200km/h, or 124/mph. It can also do 0-60 in under 3 seconds


Is speeds an adjective?

No, it is not. Speed can be a verb, or a noun meaning velocity. It can be a noun adjunct in terms such as the idiomatic "speed trap."
