Velocity Quizzes & Trivia

Here's a few mind benders for you: if you and another person were the only 2 objects in the universe and were approaching each other at a constant velocity, you would be unable to tell who was moving, or if both were moving. 

If you were the only object in the universe, you would have no idea if you were sitting at rest or travelling 100,000 miles per second. Even if there was a change in your velocity, you wouldn't know if it was an increase or a decrease of velocity. Velocity is relative, and needs a reference point.

If you think that’s neat, try to answer these quizzes featuring questions like: “How do you make a change in velocity?”, “Is 62m/sec a velocity?”, and “What is an objects velocity if it has no movement?”.

Thus, this tool helps the observer to appreciate the subtle details beyond conventional seismic data. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.9px Calibri} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.9px Calibri}        

Take this test to find out how much you know about speed and velocity and how good you are at those differing topics. The quiz is asked in an easy to understand language in other to allow you to understand the questions properly....

Velocity Questions & Answers

What is the main difference between speed and velocity?
The main difference between speed and velocity is that speed does not have a particular direction. Speed is hence scalar quantity. On the other hand, velocity has a direction which makes it a vector quantity. Scalar quantities are those that are dire
What is the difference between Velocity and Speed?
Velocity and Speed are terms used in physics. Both are used to calculate the distance between two points. It is effortless to think both velocity and Speed are the same; in fact, many people use the words interchangeably. But the truth is, velocity i
What is the difference between Average Speed and Average Velocity?
Average Speed and Average Velocity are both similar, in that, both terms refer to the change in position of a body. However, there are still some differences between them. Average speed can be defined as the total distance covered by an object divide
