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

## Related Questions The forces acting on the object determine the its direction. Velocity tells you the speed and direction of an object. The speed and direction of a moving object is called its vector; velocity  When a moving object is pushed in the direction of its motion the speed of the object increases 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. The speed and direction of an object together are called the object's velocity. 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. Velocity describes the speed and direction of travel of an object. Velocity= The speed and the direction in which an object is travelling in As regards a moving object, we call the measure of the speed and direction it is moving its velocity. acceleration is the increase of speed in a moving object. velocity is the speed and direction of a moving object. When you are moving with the same speed as the object and in the same direction. The object will maintain its speed and direction or the object will not change its speed or direction. 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. The speed increases. The object accellerates positively in the direction of motion. Velocity tells you what speed a moving object travels at and in what direction. If you know the speed and direction of the object's motion, then you know its velocity. 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. 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. speed is how fast an object is moving, velocity is how fast an object is moving in a given direction.  Yes. An object moving at all in any direction at any speed has momentum due to inertia.  speed How fast in which direction is velocity. 1). Force applied to a moving object, in the direction of its motion. Speed increases, direction remains unchanged. 2). Force applied to a moving object, opposite to the direction of its motion. Speed decreases, direction remains unchanged. 3). Force applied to a moving object, in an arbitrary direction not parallel to the direction of motion. Speed and direction both change. 4). (bonus): Force applied to a moving object, force is kept exactly perpendicular to the direction of motion at every instant. Speed remains constant, path of the motion becomes circular.
