The speed and direction of a moving object is called?

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



What happen to the speed of moving object when it is pushed in the direction of motion?

When a moving object is pushed in the direction of its motion the speed of the object increases


What represents the velocity of a moving object?

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.


Speed and direction an object is moving?

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


Which of these determines the speed and direction of moving object?

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


What is the defintion of velocity?

Velocity is a vector quantity that describes the speed and direction that an object is moving. It is the same as "speed" except that it includes the direction of the object as well. Speed is the rate of change of distance.


What is the speed of an object moving on a particular direction?

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.


What would describe both speed and direction of a moving object?

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



What describes an object's speed and direction?

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


The speed and direction of a moving object determines the what of an object?

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


How are velocity and acceleration different?

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


When do you not feel the speed of any object?

When you are moving with the same speed as the object and in the same direction.


What does newtons first law say about a moving object if the forces on the object are balanced?

The object will maintain its speed and direction or the object will not change its speed or direction.


Is it true or false that velocity only describes the direction in which the object is moving?

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.


Does speed tell us what direction an object is moving?

Speed is a scalar quantity and has only magnitude and not direction. Hence, speed cannot tell us what direction an object is moving. However, velocity which is the vector equivalent of speed, can tell us the direction.


What happens to the speed of moving object when it is pushed in the direction of motion?

The speed increases. The object accellerates positively in the direction of motion.


What does velocity tell you about a moving object?

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


What the speed and the direction an object are moving?

If you know the speed and direction of the object's motion, then you know its velocity.


What is any change in the speed or direction of a moving object?

This is one definition of acceleration (including deceleration) - any change in the speed of motion of a moving object, or in the direction of its motion. Motion is a vector value with both speed and direction.


What is speed in given direction?

The amount of speed in a given direction is the 'component' of speed in that direction. The total amount of speed AND the direction of the total speed is the 'velocity' of the moving object.



Explain the difference between velocity and speed?

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