No, they are not the same! Velocity involves the speed and the direction of the moving object...

### What kind of speed does a moving object have when the velocity stays the same?

same speed , coz velocity is constant velocity consists of speed and direction...

### Does average velocity and average speed have the same number?

velocity is a vector and speed is scalar. Velocity has magnitude and directions, with magnitude being speed. The magnitude of average velocity and average speed is 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.

### How is velocity same from instantaneous speed?

Instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the velocity. Velocity also states the [direction] of the speed.

### Can your speed and velocity ever have the same magnitude?

Speed and velocity always have the same magnitude, becausespeed is the magnitude of velocity.The difference is that velocity has a direction but speed doesn't

### Are Speed and velocity the same thing?

No. Speed has no direction. Velocity is speed anddirection.

### What is the speed velocity of a body?

In common speech, velocity means speed, they are the same thing.

### Are speed and acceleration the same?

No. Speed is the magnitude of velocity and acceleration is the change of velocity in time.

### What is the numerical ratio of velocity of speed of an object?

The size of velocity and the size of speed are the same number. But velocity also has a direction and speed doesn't.

### What is the numerical ratio of velocity to speed an object?

The size of velocity and the size of speed are the same number. But velocity also has a direction and speed doesn't.

### Why is velocity and speed same unit?

Velocity is speed, plus an indication of direction. To indicate a velocity, you can indicate a speed (this will logically use units of speed), and a direction.

### Can velocity speed up an object?

Well velocity is basically the same thing as speed but with direction (velocity can be negative or positive and speed is always positive). l velocity l = speed So a change in velocity means a change in speed.
