## Introduction to Velocity and Speed and the differences between the two.

Jul 30, 2013

This video introduces the definition of Velocity. It also walks through a simple, introductory average velocity example problem. At the end it defines speed and discusses the difference between speed and velocity.

1. Very helpful. Goofy enough to help me pay attention, too. Thanks guy!

2. This guy is great. Helped a lot starting off in physics this year. Keep it up!

3. This is really well done. Really explains things thoroughly and points out common mistakes. It covered everything it could have, nice.

4. You won't believe what my physics teacher said today..He said speed and velocity is same.. I tried to tell him but what can a suggestion of a student do to a teacher…

5. A1 says:

People underappreciates this channel doe

6. you are awesome I really enjoyed learning with you thank you so much

7. i have a doubt, you said that speed and magnitude of velocity will be equal only if the object travels in a straight line but if an object moves in a straight line and then returns back to its initial position then its velocity will be zero as its displacement is zero but then its speed won't be zero yeah ?

8. This video is so perfectly understandable ! I do have a question but this is not accordance with this video..what is actually initial velocity ( ik this is quite easy kind of question but i do wanna understand ) can u please help me out ? Suppose for an example , a body is thrown with an initial velocity of 10 m/s . Is this velocity obtained just after throwing or was it already 10 m/s ? And again when it is said that initial velocity is 0 ! What does this mean again ? What actually is initial velocity ? I have got several minute misconceptions like this related to physics ! Can u please help me out ?

9. When I calculate velocity, I continuously forget to write direction. I've to be careful not to miss this. And this video is helpful too. thank you Mr. P.

10. What a great way of teaching physics. You answer the question which raises in student mind like a me regarding the particular topic.thanks for video

11. 1:20 AP environmental science spoiled me. We had next to no math, so ,when we did, even our teacher would do this. It's worth having to break that habit for this year for the double periods of doing nothing but splashing around in a creek for an hour and a half every few weeks

12. I have a question will direction of displacement change in velocity

13. You are really awesome man I loved learning from you you are the best

14. Well understood .My doubt is can magnitude of speed and velocity be equal if we shrink avg velocity to instantaneous velocity such that ds/dt =dx/dt at the small interval of time

15. Hello everyone from 6th period please subscribe I'm trying to reach a thousand million

16. Currently watching this who playlist to study for the ap exam

17. cant belive more people don't watch you this content is great and I've already learned so much thank you man
