One example of Velocity is that if you are running in the same direction, your speed and velocity is the same. But if you are running AROUND the track, your speed is the same but your velocity is changing.

An example for velocity is:23,000 mph north.

It is an example of a velocity.

The velocity of a cube is _?

Anything that is done over a distance per unit time will always be an example of velocity.

One example problem of speed and velocity would be 'What is the speed of a sailboat traveling 100 meters in 180 seconds?' You can use a calculator to solve these types of problems.

Velocity is speed with a direction. For Example 30 Miles/hour East would be velocity.

constant velocity means the speed and direction are the same.

Speed is how fast you are going.Velocity is almost the same but for one thing: it also includes what direction you are moving.For example:A car can have a speed of 50 mph, but a velocity of 30 mph northwards.

If the velocity is constant (i.e., there is no acceleration). Terminal velocity is an example, although any constant velocity would fit this description.

In order to have a vector quantity, one needs to have some sort of magnitude and a direction. An example of this is velocity. Velocity is a speed in a certain direction, so velocity is a vector, but speed is not. These words are commonly misused in society, and used interchageably with one another.

Velocity, acceleration

Quite simply, this means that momentum is a vector quantity; the direction is relevant. This is useful, for example, for calculations involving the conservation of momentum. Actually momentum is the product of velocity and mass, and velocity is also a vector quantity - thus, in this example, one object will have a positive velocity (more precisely: a positive component of the velocity along the x-axis, for example), the other, negative. Multiplying this velocity by the mass will also give a quantity which may be positive or negative (or rather, have positive or negative components).

We distinguish between speed and velocity because if you add the speedsof objects, their directions are important. For example, the velocity of an airplane with ...

Instantaneous velocity: The velocity of an object at one moment in time.

If you accelerate an object in one direction the velocity is in the same direction; however if it alraedy had an itial velocity that may not be true. V = vo + at For example if moving with initial velocity to the East and accelerated to the west, it will slow down but still move east for a time

An example of a vector quantity would be velocity. The velocity of the wind, for example, has both speed and direction. Another example would be an automobile. It has both speed or magnitude and direction.

the velocity of an object is the size of the speed/magnitude plus the direction it is going in

Of course. In fact, in order to have constant velocity, it must have constant speed.What you really want to know: Can a body have changing velocity when it has constant speed ?The answer to that one is also "yes", for example when it is moving in a circle, the speed is constant but the velocity is changing all the time (in direction).

One would use Velocity wheels on bicycles. Velocity wheels should be used in conjunction with Velocity brand rims and hubs. One can purchase Velocity products for their bicycle through their website, VelocityUSA.

Change in velocity is called acceleration. It is vector , which means has both magnitude and direction. There is no one equation for it, but one example that works if mass, m, is constant, and F, force is constant would be a = F/m.

Constant velocity is the Newton's first law. A real life example is Sunlight, an example of constant velocity, light traveling at the constant speed of light.. On earth, an ice skater gliding or a hockey puck sliding on ice is a close example of nearly constant velocity. A stable oil drilling platform is close to zero constant velocity.
