SPEED VS VELOCITY DIFFERENCE
Here we have listed the difference between speed and velocity in tabular form with examples.
Speed 
Velocity 
Definition: SPEED is defined as the distance traveled by a body per
unit time. 
Definition: VELOCITY is defined as the distance traveled by a body
per unit time in a given direction. 
SPEED is defined as the rate of change of distance. 
VELOCITY is defined as the rate of change of displacement. 
SPEED is used to find out “ how fast an object is moving ”. 
VELOCITY is used to find out “ what is the direction for moving
object ”. 
SPEED is a scalar quantity as it has only magnitude. 
VELOCITY is a vector quantity as it has both magnitudes as well as
direction. 
SPEED is always positive. 
VELOCITY can be positive or negative. 
SPEED for a moving object can never be zero. 
VELOCITY for a moving object can be zero if the body returns to its
initial position. 
SPEED = Distance / Time 
VELOCITY = Displacement / Time 
SPEED is denoted by s or v. 
VELOCITY is denoted by v or v and a cap or arrow above
it. 
S.I. Unit – m/s 

Dimension – LT^{1}
