# Velocity and Speed In your own words, explain the difference between the velocity of an object and its speed.

To determine

The difference between the velocity of an object and its speed.

Explanation

The velocity of an object has magnitude as well as direction but speed has only magnitude.

For example, the velocity of an object is a vector quantity and it is given by,

v=12i+2j, which means speed in x-axis is 12 units and in y-axis it is 2 units. And its magnitude is given by,

v=122+22
