What is the speed and direction of an object called?

Speed with direction is called Velocity


The speed and direction of a moving object is called?

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


Speed and direction an object is moving?

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



What describes the rate at which an object moves?

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".


Can particle with constant speed be acceleration?

Yes. Velocity implies both a magnitude and a direction. An object going around in a circle moves at a constant speed, but the direction, and therefore the velocity, is changing.Yes.

What is the speed of an object moving on a particular direction?

The speed of an object moving in a particular direction is called the velocity and it's a vector, that is, it has magnitude and direction. Speed is the scalar part of velocity.


What is the speed of an object plus its direction?

In physics, the combination is called VELOCITY.


The rate at which an object moves?

speedIn physics:If the direction doesn't matter, the word "speed" is used.If the direction DOES matter, the word "velocity" is used.


The speed and direction of an object?

The speed and direction of an object is its velocity.


What is an example of an accelerating object but moves in a constant speed?

An accelerating object is one that is changing in either speed or direction. Thus any object that is turning is accelerating while maintaining a constant speed.


What is the distance an object moves divided by the time took it to move that distance?

This describes the average speed. If there is a direction specified that the distance has moved, then it will be a vector, and called average velocity.



Speed of an object but in a certain direction?

In physics, when the direction of a speed is of interest (i.e., you want a vector), it is called a "velocity".


If something moves at a constant speed in a circle does it have acceleration?

Yes. Acceleration means changes in speed, or direction, or both. If there's no acceleration, thenthe object moves at constant speed in a straight line. In circular motion, the direction changes,and that's acceleration.


How fast an object moves is its?

How fast an object is moving is its speed. When a direction is included along with the speed (for example, "driving 30mph heading west") that's the velocity of an object. Speed and velocity are different, at least in science.


How fast an object is moving regardless of the direction it is going?

That is called speed, as opposed to velocity, which is a combination of speed and direction.


The rate at which 'n' object moves is called?

Speed. Perhaps also velocity, although the rigorous definition of velocity includes direction (a vector).


Which of these determines the speed and direction of moving object?

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


What are two ways force can cause an object to change the way it moves?

Force can cause an object to speed up, slow down, and move in a different direction. Any of these changes is called "acceleration".


What term is applied to how fast an object moves in a particular direction?

If an object is in motion, we apply the term speed to the distance (displacement) it achieves for a given unit of time. If we take speed and add a direction vector, as is asked here, we are talking about the velocity of the object.


Why the speed of an object is constant while the velocity is not?

This is not always the case. But if an object moves in a circle, at constant speed, its velocity will change. Velocity is a vector - consisting of the magnitude (the speed), and a direction. So by definition, if the direction changes, the velocity changes - you have a different vector.


What is it called when an object is at zero velocity?

this means to not have speed or direction at all. this means that the object is at rest.



If the speed of an object does not changed then the object is traveling at a?

If speed does not change then the object is moving with constant speed. when object moves in a circle its speed does not remains constant. Speed of object remains constant only if it moves along linear path.
