No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).

Velocity addition is used when motion involves vectors.

In common language, the terms "velocity" and "speed" are used interchangeably. In physics, "velocity" is a vector, and "speed" is not - meaning that when the word "velocity" is used, it specifies not just how fast something moves, but also in what direction.

A velocity report is used to determine the speed at which products are sold at retail.

As used in physics, the two are different. Speed is a scalar, velocity a vector.

Because it is defined that way. In common language, the words "speed" and "velocity" are used interchangeably. But in physics, if a vector quantity is desired, the word "velocity" is used; for a scalar quantity, the word "speed" is used.

Accelaration= change in velocity/time taken OR Acceleration=final velocity- initial velocity/time taken

The term "velocity", as used in physics, DOES have an associated direction. Most derived terms, such as "average velocity", also do.

Velocity is the rate of change in an object's location over time, also known as speed.

"Speed" is the term used in physics when you don't care about the direction. If you care about the direction, that is, you want to work with a vector, then the term "velocity" is used.

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.

One would use Velocity wheels on bicycles. Velocity wheels should be used in conjunction with Velocity brand rims and hubs. One can purchase Velocity products for their bicycle through their website, VelocityUSA.

There is average velocity, and there is instantaneous velocity. I don't think "overall velocity" is a concept generally used in physics; please clarify what you mean.

Escape Velocity is the speed needed to free from a gravitational field.It is used for objects leaving the earth's atmosphere(rockets). It is not used for Gases

Velocity is a physical quantity that measures the rate of change of a position of an item. The units used for velocity are meters per second within the SI system.

The term "speed" is commonly used to designate the magnitude of the velocity vector.

As used in physics, velocity is a vector, that is to say, the direction of the movement is also taken in account.

In science the symbol that is used to represent speed is a lowercase v for velocity. Remember that an objects velocity is a vector. It has a magnitude and a direction. Velocity is most commonly given units of m/s.
