## Related Questions A change in the position of an object is called a displacement. Velocity is the measure of the rate of change of displacement with respect to time. In physics, velocity is the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object. The rate of change of velocity. (As velocity is the rate of change of position.) Velocity is defined as the rate of change of the position of an object in relation to the specification of its speed and direction of motion. Therefore, an object at rest will have zero velocity.  Because of its velocity (velocity is the rate of change of position), an object will move. An object is stationary if it has no velocity because it will not be able to move without velocity. Therefore, you can tell that an object has moved because of velocity. Position is the place where an object is located. Speed is the rate at which position changes. Velocity is the speed and direction of motion. Acceleration is the rate at which velocity changes, and the direction of the change. So you could say that acceleration is the rate at which (the rate at which position changes and the direction) changes, and the direction of the change. In physics, velocity is the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object. Displacement of air is what it is called. The velocity of an object in uniform circular motion is constant, because, velocity is the rate of change of position at a given time or speed. Rate of change in position is called velocity. Rate of change of position = velocityRate of change of velocity = accelerationRate of change of acceleration = jerk, jolt, surge, or lurch The rate of change of velocity is termed acceleration. No, velocity is the instantaneous speed of an object, the rate of change would be the acceleration of the object. Velocity is the rate of change of position. The rate of change of position is the velocity. The velocity at a specific point in time is called the instantaneous velocity. Velocity is the rate of change of position - i.e., the derivative of position with respect to time.Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity - i.e., the second derivative of position with respect to time. Speed and Velocity are the same thing, it is a measure of rate of change of position of an object. Velocity is the rate of change of position over time. The definition of rate of rate of change of velocity is Velocity is the rate of change of the position of an object, equivalent to a specification of its speed and direction of motion, e.g. 60 km/h to the north. Velocity is an important concept in kinematics, the branch of classical mechanics which describes the motion of bodies.  The rate of change of motion is known as acceleration. Acceleration is the change in velocity over change in time. Velocity is the rate of change of position, or change in position over change in time. Acceleration is the rate and direction of change in velocity. Velocity is the rate and direction of change in position. The slope of the tangent line in a position vs. time graph is the velocity of an object. Velocity is the rate of change of position, and on a graph, slope is the rate of change of the function. We can use the slope to determine the velocity at any point on the graph. This works best with calculus. Take the derivative of the position function with respect to time. You can then plug in any value for x, and get the velocity of the object. "Acceleration velocity" is a meaningless phrase. "Velocity" is the time rate of change of position. "Acceleration" is the time rate of change of velocity. Velocity if the rate of change in an objects position. If an object moves up or down, its velocity changes. So velocity happens in both directions.
