Why a change in speed of the rover might not effect its velocity?

Either a change in speed or direction, or both, will affect its velocity. If there is a change in speed, then the rover's velocity has changed.

Does friction affect speed or velocity?

Speed is a scalar (non-directional) representation of velocity. Friction affects the magnitude of both and the direction of velocity.

What factors could affect the velocity of a moving object but not the speed?

None, velocity is the speed at which something moves, they are the same thing

How does acceleration affect speed and velocity?

Acceleration changes the speed - usually increases it. A reduction is speed is negative acceleration , or deceleration. Acceleration can change the speed or direction (or both) of velocity.

The rate at which something moves?

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

How speed increase with velocity?

Velocity is a vector which incorporates both speed (a scalar) and direction. So the speed (distance divided by time) must increase if the velocity increases as the direction (an angular measurement) does not affect the absolute value of the vector.

What is velocity and speed?

Velocity is speed along with the direction of the speed.

The list of things that can affect the speed at which a wave travels through a medium?

velocity = frequency * wavelength Therefore, frequency and wavelength both affect the speed of a wave.

Does a change in direction affect acceleration?

Yes. Because a change of direction is the change of velocity and velocity changes in either speed or direction.

What is the biggest difference between speed and velocity?

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

How does distance and time affect the speed?

if the time is invcreasing the velocity increases too and depends on the distance to reach a high speed.

Is Speed different from Velocity?

velocity is speed in a direction

Diffetiate speed and velocity?

Speed has no direction, velocity does.

Is velocity the speed of a wave?

Velocity and speed are not synonyms.

Are speed and velocity different?

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

Whats the difference between speed and velocity?

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!)

Can your speed and velocity ever have the same magnitude?

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

Does the color of a laser affect the velocity of a light wave projected by the laser?

Colors are determined by the wavelengths but all wavelengths travel at the same speed. So no, colors do not affect the velocity of light.

Does a change in direction affect velocity explain?

A change in direction does cause a change in velocity. Speed is increased due to acceleration when direction is reversed.

How is speed of a body related its velocity?

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.

How is velocity same from instantaneous speed?

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

Can velocity speed up an object?

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.

When is speed equal to the magnitude of velocity?

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.

What is the difference betweenn speed and velocity?

Velocity is speed with a direction
