# Is speed the same thing as velocity?

No. Speed is how fast, Velocity is how fast AND in what direction.

Think of a car driving in a circle at 60 mph. You change velocity as the car turns on the curve (new direction = new velocity), without changing your speed at 60mph.

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

In common speech, velocity means speed, they are the same thing.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

"Speed" &amp; "Velocity" are the same thing, they were not "invented" but discovered so to speak through Theoretical physics.

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

They are the same thing, however velocity is 'in a given direction', speed is in any direction.

Speed and Velocity are the same thing, it is a measure of rate of change of position of an 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

Speed is how fast something is going. Velocity is the speed and direction something is going.

Speed is how fast you are going.Velocity is almost the same but for one thing: it also includes what direction you are moving.For example:A car can have a speed of 50 mph, but a velocity of 30 mph northwards.

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

same speed , coz velocity is constant velocity consists of speed and direction...

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.

No. Inertia is the tendency of an object to maintain its velocity.

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.

To avoid a hair-splitting argu-fest, "speed" and "velocity" essentially mean the same thing. There are semantic aspects one could debate in that, but they aren't worth it. In essence, they're the same thing.

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

Feet per second is a unit of velocity, but not necessarily the same thing. Velocity could be in meters per hour or feet per second could be a measure of speed, which does not take direction into account, as velocity does.
