# How do you know when something has the same velocity and when it doesnt?

By definition, it would have the same speed and direction as the compared object.

This can be evidenced by the two objects having an unchanging spatial relationship: i.e. the objects remain the same direction and distance from each other.

### Does speed and velocity are measured the same way?

Not exactly. Let me explain:Speed is one part of velocity. If you're measuring velocity, you have to know thespeed. But that's not all. For velocity, you also have to know the direction.

### What factors could affect the velocity of a moving object but not the speed?

None, velocity is the speed at which something moves, they are the same thing

### What is total momentum of the universe?

With respect to what? Any velocity must be specified with relation to something, the same goes for momentum, which depends on velocity.

### Can speed and velocity be unequal in a body?

Speed and velocity cannot be unequal for the same object. Speed tells you how quickly something is moving (as measured, for example, in meters per second) and velocity tells you how quickly something is moving and in what direction it is moving.

### Is speed and velocit y the same thing?

Speed is how fast something is going. Velocity is the speed and direction something is going.

### What must you know to determine which two vehicles traveling at the same velocity has the greater momentum?

You need to know their mass. p=mv momentum=Mass times Velocity

### What must you know to determine which of two vehicles traveling at the same velocity has the greater momentum?

You need to know their mass. p=mv momentum=Mass times Velocity

### What does it mean if the guy y o you r seeing for about two months doesnt call you unless you call him first and when you ask him to do something he doesnt but when he asks he doesnt blow you off?

This might be because he is a man, he might not call you because he feels like if he does you might think he's way way to into you when he is but he doesnt really want you to know it yet. The same goes when he doesnt do something you ask him to, he's probably trying to get the same message to you. Dont worry this happens a lot with couples it's not just you and your boyfriend!!!

### What and Velocity are defined the same for all objects?

Never. They're fundamentally different things. Velocity has a size and a direction. Its size alone, without the direction, is speed. So speed is one part of velocity, but not all of it, so they can never be the same. Something like a finger can never be the same as a hand.

he doesnt

### If two automobiles have the same acceleration do they have the same velocity?

No. V=v0 +at is the formula for velocity, the acceleration 'a' can be the same but the initial velocity v0 may be different. If v0 is the same for the two automobiles , the velocity would be the same.

### What is one example of velocity?

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.
