# Is the velocity of one car traveling 40 km per hour east the same as a car traveling 40 km per hour south?

No. The speed is the same, the velocity is not. The term "velocity" includes the indication of the direction. Two velocities are the same if they have the same magnitude (e.g., both are 40 km/hour), AND the same direction.

A car traveling north at 30 miles per hour is. Its velocity is 30 miles per hour north.

Velocity tells the speed AND what direction it's in. -- "30 miles per hour" is a speed. -- "30 miles per hour north" is a velocity. -- "30 miles per hour east" and "30 miles per hour south" are the same speed but different velocities.

Velocity is speed with a direction. For Example 30 Miles/hour East would be velocity.

Velocity is speed plus direction. If you say you are traveling at 54 miles per hour, you are giving your speed. If you say you are going north at 54 miles per hour, you are giving your 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" are identical speeds but different velocities.

'Velocity' should be compared with 'speed', and it should be understood that they're different. "30 miles per hour" is a speed. "30 miles per hour toward the south" is a velocity.

More accurately, velocity is a change in an object's position in a specified direction with time. So while you'd say in every day language that the car has a speed of 60 miles per hour, in physics you'd say the car's velocity is 60 miles per hour North/South/East/West.

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 east" are the same speed,but different velocities.

Velocity is a speed and its direction. -- "30 miles per hour" is a speed -- "30 miles per hour north" is a velocity -- "30 mph north" and "30 mph east" are equal speeds but different velocities.

In common language, the terms are used interchangeably. But in physics, speed is a scalar; velocity is a vector. That is, a speed is just a number (and a unit) - for example, 50 kilometers/hour. But when it is important to distinguish a direction, you talk about a velocity. For example, "50 kilometer/hour to the north". Velocity is a speed AND a direction. "50 km/hour north" and "50 km/hour east" are the same speed but different velocity.

The time will move ahead an hour, or in some time zones by half an hour.

150 km per hour due East (or even -150 km per hour due West).

Easy answer: velocity is defined as speed in a specific direction. So, if a car is traveling at a velocity of due west, 60 miles per hour, then turns onto a road going north, the velocity has changed to due north, 60 miles per hour. But the speed has stayed the same.

Momentum is mass times velocity, if the velocity of the two are the same, the object with the greater mass will have proportionally greater momentum.

The earth's mean orbital velocity is 18.5 miles per second (66,600 miles per hour).

The velocity of a car is the speed at which it is moving and also the direction in which it is travelling. It might be 55 miles per hour east, or 35 miles per hour southwest, or just about anything else like that.
