# What is the difference between uniform and variable velocity?

Today I will explain the difference between uniform and variable velocity in detail.

## Uniform Velocity

• When a body covers equal displacements in equal intervals of time, the velocity attained by the body is known as uniform velocity.
• Uniform Velocity is uni-directional ,i.e, changing the direction changes velocity.

## Variable Velocity

• When a body covers unequal displacements in same or different intervals of time, the velocity attained by the body is known as variable velocity.
• In variable velocity movement of body can be multi-directional(curved).

SI Unit of Velocity is m/s.

From the concept of variable velocity, acceleration is defined as

## Acceleration:

The rate of change of velocity with respect to time is known as acceleration. It is given by formula:

Acceleration = a = Change in Velocity/Change in Time = ΔV/Δt

SI Unit Of Acceleration Is metre per second square(m )
