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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Velocity is speed, plus an indication of direction. To indicate a velocity, you can indicate a speed (this will logically use units of speed), and a direction.

Speed and velocity are never the same thing.Velocity means 'speed' AND the direction it's going.

The size of velocity and the size of speed are the same number. But velocity also has a direction and speed doesn't.

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.

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.

Speed rate of change on position (meter per second{m/s}) Velocity speed with direction

Speed is a scalar quantity (direction does not matter) and velocity is a vector quantity) ie velocity means speed in a specific direction. If you are changing direction (turning) in a car, your speed is the same, while your velocity changes.

No, because velocity includes direction as well as speed.In order for the velocities to be the same, they would have to go the same speed in the same direction.

Speed and velocity same thing and acceleration is how fast it can get to a speed. More acceleration will get faster quicker

Speed takes no notice of the direction of the motion.Velocity means the speed and its direction.

The magnitude(the value). Speed is only magnitude Velocity is magnitude & direction

Velocity means speed, the two words mean the same thing, they are synonymous.

Their 'sizes' are. But if you want it to be a velocity, thenyou also have to tell the direction of the speed.

because they measure different aspects of the same thing, velocity also has direction but speed lacks direction. otherwise they are the same.
