# What is the differentiate between speed and velocity?

Today I will explain the differentiate between speed and velocity in detail.

## Speed

• The numeric value(magnitude) of velocity is called speed.
• It is a scalar quantity.
• Itâ€™s magnitude can be negative relative to other aspects of motion.

## Velocity

• Rate of change of displacement is called velocity.
• It is a vector quantity.
• Itâ€™s magnitude is always positive as negative sign only shows direction in vectors.

## Conclusion

I hope you have understood the differentiate between speed and velocity. I would be very thankful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to your friends or sharing it on Facebook, Reddit, Pinterest, Twitter, or Instagram. Thank you!
