Velocity only describes the speed. Vector describes both speed and direction. That entails trigonometry.

What describes the speed and direction of an object?

Velocity describes the speed and direction of an object.velocityvelocity




Includes both the speed of an object and the direction its moving?

Velocity describes the speed and direction of travel of an object.


Does velocity only describes the direction in which an objects moving?

No. Velocity is a vector that describes both the direction in which an object is moving and its speed in that direction.


Which term can describe both the speed and direction of an objects motion?

Velocity describes both the speed and direction an object is moving.


What are the differences between speed and velocity?

Speed is the distance an object travels per unit of time and velocity describes the speed and direction of a moving object.


What is the defintion of velocity?

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.


What describes an object's speed and direction?

As regards a moving object, we call the measure of the speed and direction it is moving its velocity.



The speed and direction of an object?

The speed and direction of an object is its velocity.


What is the velocity of a object?

the velocity of an object is its speed and direction


The speed and direction of a moving object determines the what of an object?

The speed and direction of an object combine to give its velocity with the speed being equal to the magnitude of the velocity.


What is vector and resultant velocity?

A vector is used to represent direction and magnitude of speed. Velocity is the speed of an object and a specification of its direction of motion. Speed describes only how fast an object is moving, whereas velocity gives both how fast and in what direction the object is moving. Therefore a vector can be used to represent a velocity. The term "resultant velocity" implies a change in velocity which can be determined using vector analysis.


What is the definition of speed of an object and specification of its direction of motion?

If the speed of an object is cited and its direction of motion is also cited, we have the velocity of the object. Velocity is speed plus a direction vector.


What is called the speed and direction an object moves?

The speed and direction an object moves is its velocity.


What is the speed of an object plus its direction?

In physics, the combination is called VELOCITY.


What represents the velocity of a moving object?

Speed and direction of the object. Speed is but an object moving in a straight line, while velocity is a change in direction of the object i.e. 45kph in a nnw direction.


How is veloctionrelatedto both speed and direction?

Speed descibes the rate of motion of an object. Velocity describes rate of motion (speed) of an objectin a specific direction. For example - the car's speed was 60mph, the car's velocity was west at 60mph.


Velocity is the change of speed and direction of an object?

No. Velocity is the present speed and direction of motion.If speed or direction changes, then that's 'acceleration'.


What is the speed and direction of an object called?

Speed with direction is called Velocity


Is it true or false that velocity only describes the direction in which the object is moving?

The word "only" makes that statement false. Velocity does describe the directionin which the object is moving, but it also includes the object's speed.


Speed and direction an object is moving?

The speed and direction of an object together are called the object's velocity.


Velocity is the change of speed and or direction of an object?

FALSE. Acceleration is the change of speed and/or direction of an object.


What is the Velocity of speed?

Velocity is the vector form of speed. It is the speed of an object in a specified direction.
