Speed is the size of velocity. But velocity also has a direction.

"30 miles per hour" is speed.

"30 miles per hour north" is velocity.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

When average velocity and average speed is equal?

For the instantaneous value of average velocity, average speed and average velocity are equal.


When do the velocity and speed of moving body become equal?

The magnitude of the velocity is always equal to the speed. But velocity is a vector quantity (has a magnitude and direction) while speed is just a scalar quantity (only magnitude). So velocity and speed are never equal.


Why is the absolute value of velocity equal to speed?

Velocity is a vector. The magnitude of the velocity - its absolute value - is its speed.


When is speed equal to the magnitude of velocity?

That is the case when you are talking about instantaneous speed and velocity - or when the velocity is constant. In the case of an average speed and velocity, this relation does not hold.


Can a body have velocity and speed equal?

YES!!!!!!!!!!!! A body can have equal velocity and speed at the same time. for suppose a body is travelling at 20m/s in north direction then the speed of the body is also equal to 20m/s. hence speed and velocity are equal in this case.


When do speed and velocity become equal?

speed and velocity becomes equal when a body is moving on a straight road without changing its direction.


When is the speed equal to magnitude of velocity?

Always


Is final velocity equal to speed?

Yea it is.


Can speed equal velocity?

Speed is the size of velocity. But velocity also has a direction. "30 miles per hour" is speed. "30 miles per hour north" is velocity.


What is formula for speed?

Velocity is equal to the change in distance divided by the change in time. Speed is the magnitude of velocity


Under what conditions is the magnitude of average velocity of an object equal to its average speed?

The magnitude of average velocity of an object equal to its average speed if that object is moving with CONSTANT velocity.


Is velocity equal to speed?

Velocity is a vector, which means it has a direction, but speed isn't. Speed is the absolute value of velocity. Velocity can be negative, meaning that the speed is opposite to the direction that you're calling the positive direction.


If two objects have different speed can they have the same velocity?

No. Speed is the magnitude of the velocity vector. In order for two velocities to be equal, they must have equal magnitudes and equal (parallel) directions.


Why is the value of velocity equal to speed?

This is because speed is defined as the absolute value of velocity - irrespective of the direction of motion.


Is the absolute value of velocity equal to speed?

Ye.s


Velocity is equal to what?

The initial speed of a given particle.


When is speed equal to magnitude of velocity?

Speed is equal to the magnitude of velocity almost always. Speed is total distance / total time no matter which way the distance goes. Velocity is the distance from a starting point divided by total time.


How is acceleration similar to speed and velocity?

-- The magnitude of acceleration is equal to the time rate of change of speed. -- The magnitude of acceleration is equal to the time rate of change of the magnitude of velocity. -- Acceleration and velocity are both vectors.


Why is the absolute value of speed equal to velocity?

It's not. Unless you add a direction to speed it will not become velocity. Since positive and negative are sometimes used to denote direction, absolute value of velocity may equal speed (certain situations)


The speed and direction of a moving object determines the what of an object?

The speed and direction of an object combine to give its velocity with the speed being equal to the magnitude of the velocity.


What vector has a magnitude equal to instantaneous speed?

the velocity vector


Is the reciprocal of time is equal to velocity?

No. Velocity is the Speed of an object, plus a component that defines its direction.


Can two cars of equal speed have equal velocities?

Yes. If they are traveling in the same direction and at the same speed, then they have the same velocity.


Can objects have equal speeds without having equal velocity?

speed is a scalar and velocity a vector. Yes, they have equal speeds in the direction of the vector. If you run up a hill at 10 mph the speed and velocity in the direction up hill are the same, but the horizontal speed and vertical speed are different.


What is the movement of a stationary object?

-- acceleration = 0 -- velocity (speed and direction) exactly equal to the observer's velocity
