What Is Velocity?

Velocity is the speed and direction on an object. Most commonly the term "velocity" is used to describe the speed of an object. For example, a car might have a velocity of 5 m/s. That means that the car's speed is 5 meters per second. It's really just a fancy word for "speed" used in physics a lot.

To a layman, both "speed" and "velocity" means the same. However, there is a difference between both the terms. One of the best ways to distinguish between "speed" and "velocity" is to comprehend the difference between distance and displacement.

Speed basically tells you how fast you are going. For example, the speedometer in the car will tell you the "speed" at which you are moving. However it will not tell you about the direction in which you are going. This simply means one thing, speed does not involve direction.

An average speed= Distance Travelled/ Time taken to travel the required distance.

Velocity involves direction in addition to speed. In other words, if you want to know the velocity of a particular object, you ought to know it speed as well as displacement (read direction!). In a car, a velocity can be determined by a compass in addition to a speedometer. Velocity can thus be defined as the rate of change in displacement with respect to time.

Speed and velocity are similar but velocity is normally assumed to have direction. You can hold the speed constant going around a corner but velocity is reduced in the initial direction and increased in the final direction.

The definition for velocity is the certain direction you are going and the speed in kilometers that you are going.

Velocity is the speed at which something is traveling such as miles per hour for a car.

Velocity can be said to be speed in a stated direction, that's why it is said to be a vector quantity.

Velocity in science basically mean the speed of the state of direction both together identifying a graph or anything to calculate distance....

Speed in a given direction

Velocity is both a speed and a direction.

Example. 45 km/h at 10 degrees north could be the velocity of a car.

Speed is the distance travelled in the given time. Its a scaler quantity but Velocity is speed with a direction and a vector quantity.
