It gives the magnitude too

Velocity tells you what speed a moving object travels at and in what direction.

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.

The speed and direction of a moving object is called its vector; velocity

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

acceleration is the increase of speed in a moving object. velocity is the speed and direction of a moving object.

This was the essential question on a homework assignment. Speed tells how fast an object is moving but it does not tell the direction. Velocity tells how fast an object is moving and it also tells the direction. When velocity is positive, the object is moving up. When velocity is negative, the object is moving down.

The speed of an object moving in a particular direction is called the velocity and it's a vector, that is, it has magnitude and direction. Speed is the scalar part of velocity.

If the velocity is zero, the object is not moving. So if it moves at all, it is changing direction.

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

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

speed is how fast an object is moving, velocity is how fast an object is moving in a given direction.

-- The direction of velocity is the direction in which the object is moving.-- The direction of force acting on the object can be any direction; it doesn'thave to be related in any way to the direction in which the object is moving.-- The direction of the object's acceleration is the direction of force acting onthe object, so it doesn't have to be related in any way to the direction in whichthe object is moving either.

The forces acting on the object determine the its direction. Velocity tells you the speed and direction of an object.

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

Velocity= The speed and the direction in which an object is travelling in

speed How fast in which direction is velocity.

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

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

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.

Gravity is a force and has the effect of changing the velocity or direction of motion of a moving object.

Momentum is defined as inertia multiplied by velocity. And velocity has a direction. When a object interacts with other objects they collide and change directions.

velocity is nothing but speed of a body in the given direction. suppose if body is moving with constant velocity then VT graph will be parallel to the X -axis, if not then the VT graph is not parallel to the X-axis it means then object is moving with different velocity or it has its dierection or both velocity and aswell as direction.
