Speed is a scalar, velocity is a vector. In other words, when the direction of the speed is relevant, it is called a velocity.

Velocity is a vector, and so it has two components -- magnitude (speed) and direction. Speed is a scalar, and it is the magnitude of velocity, a vector.


That is the speed or velocity.That is the speed or velocity.That is the speed or velocity.That is the speed or velocity.


Velocity is speed along with the direction of the speed.


velocity is speed with direction; velocity is a vector and speed is a scalar


velocity is speed in a direction


Speed has no direction, velocity does.


Velocity and speed are not synonyms.


SPEED has the speed only; while VELOCITY has the direction and the speed.


Speed is scalar quantity and velocity is a vector - velocity has both speed AND direction (You might say that velocity is speed with an attitude!)


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


Part of every velocity is a speed. Speed is the size of the velocity.But the velocity also has a direction, which the speed doesn't.'30 mph North' and '30 mph West' are the same speed but different velocity.


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


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


Well velocity is basically the same thing as speed but with direction (velocity can be negative or positive and speed is always positive). l velocity l = speed So a change in velocity means a change in speed.


That is the case when you are talking about instantaneous speed and velocity - or when the velocity is constant. In the case of an average speed and velocity, this relation does not hold.


Velocity is speed with a direction


three facts about speed and velocity


It is the speed or velocity at a particular instant.



Velocity is speed with direction


Velocity is a vector Speed is a scaler


"Speed" is a scalar; "velocity" is a vector.


Velocity is speed in a direction or speed at an angle. The velocity changes when the speed or angle changes.


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


Velocity describes the speed and direction of an object.velocityvelocity
