speed is how fast an element moves .velocity includes the speed of an object and direction of its motion

Both tell you how fast distance is being covered,

but only velocity tells you in what direction.

What is the speed velocity of a body?

In common speech, velocity means speed, they are the same thing.

The rate at which something moves?

That is the speed or velocity.That is the speed or velocity.That is the speed or velocity.That is the speed or velocity.

Is it true that Velocity is the speed of the wave?

In common language, the terms "velocity" and "speed" are used interchangeably. In physics, "velocity" is a vector, and "speed" is not - meaning that when the word "velocity" is used, it specifies not just how fast something moves, but also in what direction.

What is velocity and speed?

Velocity is speed along with the direction of the speed.

What is the biggest difference between speed and velocity?

velocity is speed with direction; velocity is a vector and speed is a scalar

What does velocity and speed have in common?

a magnitude - the quantity representing how fast an object is moving

What is velocity how is it different from speed?

In common language, the terms are used interchangeably. But in physics, speed is a scalar; velocity is a vector. That is, a speed is just a number (and a unit) - for example, 50 kilometers/hour. But when it is important to distinguish a direction, you talk about a velocity. For example, "50 kilometer/hour to the north". Velocity is a speed AND a direction. "50 km/hour north" and "50 km/hour east" are the same speed but different velocity.

Is Speed different from Velocity?

velocity is speed in a direction

Diffetiate speed and velocity?

Speed has no direction, velocity does.

Is velocity the speed of a wave?

Velocity and speed are not synonyms.

Are speed and velocity different?

SPEED has the speed only; while VELOCITY has the direction and the speed.

Whats the difference between speed and velocity?

Speed is scalar quantity and velocity is a vector - velocity has both speed AND direction (You might say that velocity is speed with an attitude!)

Can your speed and velocity ever have the same magnitude?

Speed and velocity always have the same magnitude, becausespeed is the magnitude of velocity.The difference is that velocity has a direction but speed doesn't

How is speed of a body related its velocity?

Part of every velocity is a speed. Speed is the size of the velocity.But the velocity also has a direction, which the speed doesn't.'30 mph North' and '30 mph West' are the same speed but different velocity.

How is velocity same from instantaneous speed?

Instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the velocity. Velocity also states the [direction] of the speed.

Can velocity speed up an object?

Well velocity is basically the same thing as speed but with direction (velocity can be negative or positive and speed is always positive). l velocity l = speed So a change in velocity means a change in speed.

When is speed equal to the magnitude of velocity?

That is the case when you are talking about instantaneous speed and velocity - or when the velocity is constant. In the case of an average speed and velocity, this relation does not hold.

How are velocity and speed alike?

In common usage Velocity and Speed are used interchangeably. However, velocity has a specific meaning in the scientific sense.speed is the rate at which you are moving.velocity is the rate at which you are moving in a specific direction.So if two space ships are heading away from the sun in different directions, but with the same speed, these spaceships are said to have a different velocity.Related to velocity is acceleration. Again in common usage it is how fast you are speeding up or slowing down. In science it has a similar meaning but it is the rate of change of velocity.In other words, you can experience acceleration simply by changing you direction of travel, even if you keep the speed constant.

What is the difference betweenn speed and velocity?

Velocity is speed with a direction

Why it is facts about speed and velocity?

three facts about speed and velocity

What is instantaneous speed or velocity?

It is the speed or velocity at a particular instant.

What are difference between speed and velocity?

How is velocity different that speed?

Velocity is a vector Speed is a scaler
