Content

The velocity of an object is its speed in a given direction. Velocity is a vector quantity.

Students should be able to explain the vector–scalar distinction as it applies to displacement, distance, velocity and speed.

(HT only) Students should be able to explain qualitatively, with examples, that motion in a circle involves constant speed but changing velocity.
