No. A body with constant velocity is either stationary or going at constant speed in a constant direction. The usual interpretation of speed and velocity goes like this. A velocity is a vector with magnitude and direction. The magnitude is usually called its speed. Changing a speed must change the length of the vector and changing the length of the velocity vector has to change the velocity.

No. Average velocity is still a velocity.Distance is a product of (a velocity or speed) times (a length of time).

(any unit of length) / (any unit of time) is a unit that can be used for the magnitude (size) of velocity, and must always be accompanied by a description of direction. Without it, all you have is a speed, not a velocity.

Velocity is a vector that has both magnitude and direction. Magnitude tells you how fast it is moving (speed) and direction tells you which way it is moving. For example car traveling at 60 mph due East has a sped of 60 mph and direction East. The combination of speed and direction is velocity.

Average velocity equals the average speed if (and only if) the motion is in the same direction. If not, the average speed, being the average of the absolute value of the velocity, will be larger.

In math and physics, displacement and velocity are examples of vectors. The definition of a vector is that it is quantity that has both direction and magnitude. A vector is represented by an arrow that shows the direction of the quantity and a length which is the magnitude.

As the length of the slipped fault increases (all other factors being equal), so too does the magnitude of the earthquake.

No because magnitude is like length and you cannot have negative length

Magnitude of the force.

the magnitude is 7.9 the Length is: 24 Time:2-10 mintues

the magnitude is 111.2 the length is 24 days and the damage there was no damage
