Speed is how fast you are going. Velocity is how fast you are going and what direction you are headed in.

Difference between average velocity and constant acceleration?

Avg velocity is the speed you are going. Constant acceleration is the rate you increase your speed. = =


Difference between constant speed and velocity?

Speed is a scalar (Only has magnitude, no direction) Velocity is a vector (Has magnitude and direction)


What is the difference between constant velocity and variable velocity?

Constant velocity has speed always constant along the direction with respect to time. Variable velocity changes its speed with respect to time. Constant velocity has zero acceleration. Variable velocity has non-zero acceleration . An object moving at a constant velocity maintains both the same speed and direction. An object moving at a variable velocity can be changing speed or direction of travel or both.


What is the difference between constant speed and speed?

Constant speed is constant velocity which means your going a certain speed in a straight line. Speed is just your speed at an exact moment also called instantaneous speed


What is the different between constant velocity and constant speed?

constant velocity is when you maintain speed and direction, this usually is in a straight line, and constant speed means that your speed is always constant at all times.


Can you go around a curve with constant velocity?

No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.


What are difference between speed and velocity?

Velocity is speed with direction


What is the difference between constant velocity and acceleration?

Velocity is a measure of speed at any one instant and acceleration is a measure of change in speedAcceleration is defined as the rate at which velocity changes.Constant velocity doesn't change, so it's a condition of zero acceleration.


Is the velocity constant for an object in uniform circular?

Answer: No, the speed is constant, but the velocity changes, since the direction changes. Please be sure you understand the difference between "speed" and "velocity", as used in physics. Speed is scalar which has only magnitude but not direction Whereas velocity is having both. So is a vector quantitiy


What is the technical difference between speed and velocity?

The technical difference is that speed has no direction but velocity has one.


Can an object have constant velocity and but variable speed?

No. Velocity has two parts, speed and direction A constant velocity means that both the speed and the direction must be constant. So a constant velocity must have a constant 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 is the difference between uniform motion and constant acceleration?

"Uniform motion" means constant velocity ... constant speed in a straight line. "Acceleration" means any change in velocity ... speed or direction. So 'uniform motion' means zero acceleration.



Can the speed of an object changes if there is constant velocity?

No, constant velocity implies constant speed. But velocity can change even when speed remains constant, since speed is a scalar quantity but velocity is a vector quantity.


What is the difference between zero velocity and zero acceleration?

Zero velocity means the object has no speed, that is, it's not moving. Zero acceleration means the object is moving with constant speed in a straight line, that is, its velocity is not changing.


What is the difference between constant speed and variable speed?

The difference is that constant speed doesn't change but variable speed does. (change)


What is the difference between an object's speed and a object's velocity?

The difference between an object's speed and an object's velocity is that the object's speed is how fast it is going, and the object's velocity is how many units of speed the object has traveled.


Is constant speed constant velocity?

No. Velocity includes a direction vector, which speed does not have.


What word best describes the difference of velocity and speed?

"Direction". The only difference between velocity and speed is that velocity is a vector while speed is a magnitude. Therefore, velocity has a direction, while speed does not.


Moving at constant velocity is also moving with constant speed?

Velocity is Speed in a given direction. Moving at constant velocity is equivalent to say moving with a constant speed in a specified direction. So, moving at constant velocity implicitly means moving with constant speed.


What is the main difference between speed and velocity involves?

The main difference between speed and velocity involves direction. Velocity involves an object moving in a particular direction.


Difference between average speed and average velocity?

Direction. Velocity has speed and direction


What is an example of the difference between speed and velocity?

Speed is what it is: speed. Velocity is speed in a given direction, a vector quantity.


Can an object have a varying speed it its velocity is constant?

No. Speed is the magnitude of the velocity. If either or both the speed and direction vary, the velocity is not constant.
