Velocity has both speed and direction. It is a vector.

Speed and velocity are both measured in m/s - they both imply how fast you are going.

Velocity must also specify direction.

Speed = Distance / Time

In a distance-time graph:

  • gradient = speed
  • flat sections of the graph are where the object is stationary
  • straight sections means travelling at a steady speed
