# What is difference between speed and velocity?

Speed is a scalar and velocity is a vector (has a direction). Speed can be said to be omni-directional like the speed of light.

# How are speed and velocity different?

A speed is a measurement like "20 meters/second" or "72 kilometers/hour", without a specification of a direction. When direction is important (e.g., "20 meters/second to the n

# Velocity differs from speed in that velocity indicates?

Velocity is a vector quantity, which means that a body's speed and direction are both required to define it.. They are different because: Speed is the rate of change of dist

# What are the differences between speed and velocity?

Speed is the distance an object travels per unit of time and velocity describes the speed and direction of a moving object.

# What is the difference of speed and velocity?

As used in physics, velocity is a vector, that is to say, the direction of the movement is also taken in account.

# How are speed velocity and acceleration different?

Velocity is a vector, meaning that it has a direction. When it is being expressed, the direction is given with it (e.g. 5m/s NW). Speed is a scalar, not a vector, so it doe

# How speed and velocity differ?

Speed is the rate of covering distance. 60 mph north, south, or west are all exactly the same speed. Velocity is speed and its direction. 60 mph north, south, and east ar

# Difference between speed and velocity is?

Speed and velocity both measure an object's change in position per unit time, but velocity also depends upon the object's direction of motion.

# How is velocity different than speed?

Speed is a scalar quantity and only refers to how fast an object is moving. Velocity is a vector quantity and also takes into account direction.

# How is speed different than velocity?

Speed does not have the direction associated with it, like velocity does.

# What is the difference from speed and velocity?

Velocity has a DIRECTION as well as a MAGNITUDE (that is, velocity is a VECTOR quantity if you've learnt that term yet) The magnitude of velocity is called SPEED (just a POSIT

# Explain how velocity differs from speed?

Speed is the magnitude of velocity (which has a direction as well).

# What is the difference between speed and velocity is that velocity?

Velocity is speed and its direction. "30 miles per hour" is a speed. "30 miles per hour north" is a velocity". "30 miles per hour north" and "30 miles per hour south" areiden

# How velocity different from speed?

Velocity is acceleration and direction put together. The velocity of something changes if either acceleration or direction changes. Speed is just the average MPH measure. Ve

# How does an object's speed differ from its velocity?

Speed is a scalar magnitude (it only tells you how much). Velocityis composed of the object's speed and the direction in which it'smoving. This corresponds to the definition o
