# What is formulas finding speed and velocity?

velocity = distance / time

There are also some formulae involving acceleration; for example, in the case of constant acceleration:

velocity = initial velocity + acceleration x time

If the acceleration is not constant, an integral is used instead.

A complete description of an object's velocity consists of . . . -- its speed, and -- the direction in which it is moving.

Speed is velocity without a direction so therefore the same formula applies. average speed= distance travelled/ time

A "radar gun" is used by police to know the speed of fast moving vehicles. Velocity is a vector. That means it has magnitude and direction. Its magnitude is same as speed.

Velocity is speed along with the direction of the speed.

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

Speed has no direction, velocity does.

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

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!)

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

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.

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

No. Speed has no direction. Velocity is speed anddirection.

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.

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.

It is the speed or velocity at a particular instant.
