The main difference between speed and velocity involves direction. Velocity involves an object moving in a particular direction.

Velocity has speed and direction. Speed only has speed. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Speed is a scalar quantity having only magnitude But velocity is a vector quantity having both magnitude and direction. So a body is said to move with uniform speed around a circle but not with uniform velocity as the direction is always changing.

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

Acceleration is the change of speed upward. Velocity is any speed, in a fixed direction. So the diference, is that in speed; the direction can change, but the speed remain constant. Only if it moves faster or slower dose the speed change. So in velocity, if the speed, or the direction change, then the velocity changes.

Yes, velocity involves speed and direction. So if the direction and the speed change at a certain rate, the velocity could stay the same.

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

Velocity is speed in a certain direction. You can keep speed the same, and if you change direction then you have changed velocity.

Velocity has direction, but speed don't have.

Speed is magnitude of velocity, also velocity possess direction.

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!)

Speed is what it is: speed. Velocity is speed in a given direction, a vector quantity.

It involves the change in velocity, which is a vector quantity, meaning that it is also the change in speed.

The difference between an object's speed and an object's velocity is that the object's speed is how fast it is going, and the object's velocity is how many units of speed the object has traveled.

Velocity is the speed and direction, whereas speed is how fast your going, So to answer your question speed is velocity just without direction.

Speed is just a magnitude (or number); velocity includes information about the direction as well. In physical terms, speed is a scalar, whereas velocity is a vector.

"Direction". The only difference between velocity and speed is that velocity is a vector while speed is a magnitude. Therefore, velocity has a direction, while speed does not.

Speed is just a number; velocity includes information about the direction. In physical terms, speed is a scalar, whereas velocity is a vector.

speed is scalar while velocity is a vector. In other words, velocity is to do with direction also. Speed does not show direction.

Velocity has a direction while speed doesn't. This is why we say that velocity is a vector quantity and speed a scalar quantity.

The technical difference is that speed has no direction but velocity has one.

Velocity is the speed (distance/time) and direction of an object when speed is just distance/time.

Speed is a scalar and velocity is a vector (has a direction). Speed can be said to be omni-directional like the speed of light.
