# Do objects travling the same speed have the same velocity?

Not necessarily. "To have the same velocity" means to have the same speed

AND move in the same direction.

A car driving north at 30 miles per hour and another one driving south

at 30 miles per hour have the same speed but different velocities.

No. Velocity is the combination of a speed and its direction. In order fortwo objects to have the same velocity, they must be moving at the samespeed, and in the same direction.

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.

They would be traveling at the same speed. Two objects moving with the same velocity must be moving in the same direction and at the same speed. The reason for this is because velocity is speed in a specified direction. Another way to say that is to say that velocity is speed with a direction vector. It is a physical quantity with magnitude and direction. Two objects moving with the same speed could be moving toward a head-on collision. Or they could be moving along convergent, divergent or skewed paths. Not so with two objects that have identical velocities. They are moving on the same or on parallel courses, and they are moving at the same speed.

Two objects moving at the same velocity are moving at the same speed and in the same direction. If you're sitting on either of them, the other one appears to be motionless.

Speed is a scalar, velocity is a vector. Two objects moving at the same speed but in opposite directions will have opposite velocities. If the velocity of the elevator going up is v, the velocity of the elevator going down will be -v.

In the absence of an atmosphere, all objects will fall with the same acceleration. If two objects of different mass begin with zero velocity and are released at the same time, they will fall at the same speed.

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.

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.

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

Speed and velocity always have the same magnitude, becausespeed is the magnitude of velocity.The difference is that velocity has a direction but speed doesn't

No. Speed is the magnitude of the velocity vector. In order for two velocities to be equal, they must have equal magnitudes and equal (parallel) directions.

Momentum is mass times velocity. Note that velocity and speed are not exactly the same thing. Velocity is a term used in physics to define both the speed and the direction of a moving object, so if two objects are moving at the same speed but in opposite directions, they have opposite momentum.

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

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

No. Speed has no direction. Velocity is speed anddirection.

velocity is a vector and speed is scalar. Velocity has magnitude and directions, with magnitude being speed. The magnitude of average velocity and average speed is the same.

One example of Velocity is that if you are running in the same direction, your speed and velocity is the same. But if you are running AROUND the track, your speed is the same but your velocity is changing.

Instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the velocity. Velocity also states the [direction] of the speed.

When they travel in different directions, obviously, since velocity is made up of a speed and a direction.

Terminal velocity for a feather will be considerably lower than the terminal velocity of a bullet. The size and shape of the object will play an important role. While objects dropped from a given height in a vacuum will fall to earth at the same velocity, the resistance caused by atmosphere will be different for different objects.

=== === Since momentum is a vector and not a scalar quantity, to have the same momentum, they must have the same direction. Remember, vectors have magnitude and direction. Speed is the magnitude part of velocity. Since momentum is the product of mass (a scalar) and velocity (a vector) if two objects are moving in different directions, even if they have the same mass and speed, their momentums are different.

In common speech, velocity means speed, they are the same thing.

No. Speed is the magnitude of velocity and acceleration is the change of velocity in time.

No. Speed tells the size of velocity, but velocityalso includes the direction of the motion.
