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.

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 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.


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.


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.


What vector has a magnitude equal to instantaneous speed?

the velocity vector


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.


The slope of a position vstime graph is equal to?

speed (magnitude of velocity)


What is magnitude of velocity?

Magnitude of velocity is called 'speed'.


How is speed difrent from velocity?

Velocity has magnitude and direction and speed only has magnitude.


Is the magnitude of instantaneous velocity always equal to the instantaneous speed?

Because speed is the magnitude of the velocity vector. The velocity consists of the speed and the direction, and the whole thing can be embodied in a 3D vector. If you like the velocity is the magnitude (the speed), which is a scalar (just a real number), multiplied by a unit vector in the right direction.


Why Is the magnitude of instantaneous velocity always equal to the instantaneous speed?

What is the same between speed and velocity?

The magnitude(the value). Speed is only magnitude Velocity is magnitude & 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.
