Speed and direction an object is moving?

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


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 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 is the term for a change in speed or direction of a moving object?

A change in the speed or direction of a moving object is called acceleration. Slowing down is also acceleration, not deceleration as is commonly used for such a situation.


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.


How fast an object is moving regardless of the direction it is going?

That is called speed, as opposed to velocity, which is a combination of speed and direction.



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 rate at which an object is moving at a given instant called?

speed if no direction is needed velocity if direction is needed


How fast an object is moving is called what?

It is called "speed." If the direction is also included, the measurement is "velocity."



Includes both the speed of an object and the direction its moving?

Velocity describes the speed and direction of travel of an object.


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.


What is the speed and direction of an object called?

Speed with direction is called Velocity


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.


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 is called the speed and direction an object moves?

The speed and direction an object moves is its velocity.
