The velocity of an object can change even if the speed remains constant?

Yes. The velocity can change if the speed remains constant and the direction changes.


What are some examples when speed remains constant but the velocity changes?

Velocity is a vector; velocity tells you how fast something is traveling (speed),and its direction. A change in velocity could indicate a change in direction orspeed, or both.


Is the velocity able to change even if the speed remains constant?

Yes. The complete description of 'velocity' includes the direction of the motion. So if the direction changes, then the velocity changes, even if the speed doesn't. Also, any change of velocity is called "acceleration", even if the speed doesn't change.


When speed changes does its velocity change?

Yes. Velocity is both speed and direction. If either the speed or direction change, the velocity changes.


Can velocity change even if the speed remains constant?

Velocity is dependent on speed AND direction, therefore velocity will change if the direction is changed.


Are velocity acceleration and momentum the same?

Absolutely not.Velocity is speed in a particular direction.Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. NB that is velocity; if an obect's speed remains the same, but it's direction changes, that is a change in velocity which means there was an acceleration.Momentum is velocity multiplied by mass.


Does a change in direction affect acceleration?

Yes. Because a change of direction is the change of velocity and velocity changes in either speed or direction.


If the instantaneous speed of an object remains constant can its instantaneous velocity change?

Yes. Velocity is speed and direction so it can change velocity by changing direction.


What do you call it when an objects velocity changes?

A change in an objects velocity is called acceleration. Velocity is defined as an objects speed of travel AND its direction of travel. Acceleration can change only an objects speed, only its direction or both. If there is no acceleration acting on the object, then the velocity remains constant.


How does the change in angle changes the velocity?

Velocity is speed in a direction or speed at an angle. The velocity changes when the speed or angle changes.


How can velocity change without changing the speed?

Consider velocity as consisting of a speed, and a direction. If any of the two changes - that is, if either the speed or the direction changes - then the velocity changes.


Why does direction change when you change velocity?

Direction does not have to change when velocity is changed. You can move North at 10 m/s and change it to 8 m/s a second later. You would still be moving North. But since velocity is a vector, if direction changes, even though speed (magnitude of velocity) remains constant, then velocity most certainly changed, since both magnitude and direction make up the vector.


When the direction of an object changes what happens to it's velocity?

A change in the direction of motion IS a change of velocity,even if the speed doesn't change.


What changes in motion can result in a change in velocity?

Any change in motion (direction or speed) is a change in velocity.Velocity is a vector quantity which means that it has a magnitude and a direction.


How is acceleration different from 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.


How can velocity of a moving object change?

Well, Velocity is speed in a spefic direction so if it changes it direction it changes altogether. Sk8


Does a change in direction change acceleration?

A change in direction means acceleration, just like a change in speed does.If speed is constant and the motion is in a straight line, there's no acceleration.As soon as the speed or direction changes, we say there has been acceleration.Acceleration is the change in velocity and velocity is speed in a given direction.If the direction changes, then velocity changes. (5m/s North is unequal to 5m/s South)If velocity changes, then acceleration occurs. (Definition of Acceleration)


Determine whether you are accelerating as earth rotates once every 24 hours?

Yes. Since the direction of the movement changes, that means there is an acceleration. Remember, acceleration is a change in velocity; velocity includes both a magnitude and a direction.Yes. Since the direction of the movement changes, that means there is an acceleration. Remember, acceleration is a change in velocity; velocity includes both a magnitude and a direction.Yes. Since the direction of the movement changes, that means there is an acceleration. Remember, acceleration is a change in velocity; velocity includes both a magnitude and a direction.Yes. Since the direction of the movement changes, that means there is an acceleration. Remember, acceleration is a change in velocity; velocity includes both a magnitude and a direction.


How can acceleration change the magnitude and direction of the velocity?

Velocity is speed in some direction. Acceleration changes that speed or that direction (or both).


What changes in motion can result in a change in a change in velocity?

A change in velocity basically IS a change in motion.


Velocity is the change of speed and direction of an object?

No. Velocity is the present speed and direction of motion.If speed or direction changes, then that's 'acceleration'.


What is the change in velocity of the motion of an object i?

The change in velocity is just the change in velocity. The RATE of change of velocity - how quickly velocity changes - is usually called "acceleration".


Acceleration vs velocity?

Acceleration is the rate at which the size of velocity changes and the direction of the change.


What is the relationship between accerleration and velocity?

Acceleration is the rate of change of the magnitude of velocity and the direction in which the velocity changes.


Why does circular motion include continuous acceleration even when the speed doesnt change?

The reason is that acceleration is defined as the change in velocity per unit time. Velocity is a vector, it points in the direction of motion. Speed on the other hand is just the length of the velocity vector, which remains constant in circular motion (unless the strength of the centripetal force is allowed to vary). Velocity is not constant, after all the direction of motion in circular motion constantly changes! Therefore there is an acceleration; the direction of the velocity changes (which is thus a change in velocity).
