Velocity only describes the speed. Vector describes both speed and direction. That entails trigonometry.

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

No. Velocity is a vector that describes both the direction in which an object is moving and its speed in that direction.

As regards a moving object, we call the measure of the speed and direction it is moving its velocity.

Velocity is a vector quantity that describes the speed and direction that an object is moving. It is the same as "speed" except that it includes the direction of the object as well. Speed is the rate of change of distance.

Velocity describes both the speed and direction an object is moving.

Speed is the distance an object travels per unit of time and velocity describes the speed and direction of a moving object.

The speed and direction of an object is its velocity.

That would be vector. It describes the direction and velocity of an object. Rectangular and polar equations.

The forces acting on the object determine the its direction. Velocity tells you the speed and direction of an object.

The speed and direction an object moves is its velocity.

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

FALSE. Acceleration is the change of speed and/or direction of an object.

If the speed of an object is cited and its direction of motion is also cited, we have the velocity of the object. Velocity is speed plus a direction vector.

Speed descibes the rate of motion of an object. Velocity describes rate of motion (speed) of an objectin a specific direction. For example - the car's speed was 60mph, the car's velocity was west at 60mph.

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

Equilibrium describes any state where the acceleration and net force are zero. This means that the velocity will not change.

The speed and direction of a moving object is called its vector; velocity

Velocity= The speed and the direction in which an object is travelling in

The rate at which an object covers distance is called the object's "speed".If the direction of its motion is also stated, then you have the object's"velocity".
