velocity vector is the same as the direction in which an object is moving.
Remember that displacement refers to the change in position and that velocity is based upon this position change.
Velocity, a vector quantity, is the rate at which the position changes.

  Velocity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Velocity (symbol: v) is a vector measurement of the rate and direction of motion.
Velocity can also be defined as rate of change of displacement or just as the rate of displacement, depending on how the term displacement is used.
In polar coordinates, a two-dimensional velocity can be decomposed into a radial velocity, defined as the component of velocity away from or toward the origin, and transverse velocity, the component of velocity along a circle centred at the origin, and equal to the distance to the origin times the angular velocity.

 Escape Velocity Encyclopedia Article @ LaunchBase.net   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In physics, for a given gravitational field and a given position, the escape velocity is the minimum speed an object without propulsion, at that position, needs to have to move away indefinitely from the source of the field, as opposed to falling back or staying in an orbit within a bounded distance from the source.
The simplest way of deriving the formula for escape velocity is to use conservation of energy, thus: in order to escape, an object must have at least as much kinetic energy as the increase of potential energy required to move to infinite height.
For a body rotating about its axis the escape velocity with respect to the surface does depend on direction e.g., for the Earth the rotational velocity is 465 m/s to the east at the equator, and the escape velocity to the east, with respect to the Earth's surface, is ca.

 Velocity
Velocity is the speed an object has in a particular direction.
Velocity may be uniform, which means the distances and the direction traveled during a given unit of time are the same throughout the motion.
V represents the average velocity, v-1 is equal to the initial velocity and v=2 is equal to the final velocity.

 Define velocity - a Whatis.com definition
Velocity is a vector expression of the displacement that an object or particle undergoes with respect to time.
Velocity can be expressed either as an average over a period of time, or as an instantaneous value at a single moment in time.
However, the instantaneous velocity depends on time, and might be anything between zero and 30 m/s northward, depending on the exact moment at which it is measured.

 What is escape velocity?
Escape velocity is defined to be the minimum velocity an object must have in order to escape the gravitational field of the earth, that is, escape the earth without ever falling back.
Where m is the mass of the object, M mass of the earth, G is the gravitational constant, R is the radius of the earth, and v is the escape velocity.
So, an object which has this velocity at the surface of the earth, will totally escape the earth's gravitational field (ignoring the losses due to the atmosphere.) It is all there is to it.

 Speed and Velocity   (Site not responding. Last check: )
As such, velocity is "direction-aware." When evaluating the velocity of an object, one must keep track of direction.
The direction of the velocity vector is simply the same as the direction which an object is moving.
Remember that the displacement refers to the change in position and the velocity is based upon this position change.

 [No title]
These studies report the variability of face velocities across a working range of sash heights, defined as 8 to 16 inches, in constant volume fume hoods and provide evidence that by increasing the minimal volume of air exhausted, the bypass fume hood is an appropriate design to connect to a variable air volume (VAV) system.
The amplitude of the velocity curve appears to be a measure of the magnitude of the disturbance; the time before a constant velocity is reached is a measure of the time it takes the system to recover.
Although the face velocity recovery may be different and recovery times may be longer in constant volume hoods, in both VAV and constant volume hoods, this period of instability may make it more likely that contaminants will escape from the fume hood.

For example, if someone gave you the velocity, initial velocity, and time and asked you to find the acceleration, this formula would not be able to give you the correct answer if the object was not undergoing a constant acceleration.
Since we are solving for v (the velocity of the object after it undergoes the constant acceleration), we need to know the values for the initial velocity, acceleration, and the time that the object undergoes the constant acceleration.
The initial velocity of the object is 0 m/sec because we stated that it was initially at rest.

 Terminal Velocity   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The magnitude of the drag is given by the drag equation.
The chemistry of the atmosphere and the gravitational constant of a planet affects the terminal velocity.
For airflow near and faster than the speed of sound, there is a large increase in the drag coefficient because of the formation of shock waves on the object.

 Velocity   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Velocity is a vector quantity, and average velocity can be defined as the displacement divided by the time.
The units for velocity can be implied from the definition to be meters/second or in general any distance unit over any time unit.
If the beginning and ending velocities for this motion are known, and the acceleration is constant, the average velocity can also be expressed as

 Speed of a Skydiver (Terminal Velocity)
Another factor that affects terminal velocity is the orientation at which a body falls.
The terminal velocity for a skydiver was found to be in a range from 53 m/s to 76 m/s.
Terminal velocity is often reported to be approximately 60 m/s for a typical skydiver in free fall.

 MF Bliki: XpVelocity
Velocity is a statement of how much stuff a team (or a person if it's personal velocity) gets done in an iteration.
The velocity of the next iteration is equal to how much actually got actually in the last iteration (some teams use a short running average.)
If you see someone saying their velocity is 0.7, then they are almost certainly in error and actually referring to Load Factor (the ratio of ideal time to calendar time, now rarely used.)

 Constancy of the Velocity of Light
The possibility that the velocity of light, c, is not a fixed constant is reconsidered by statistical analysis of the historical measurements collected from four sources.
The velocity of light data from four different sources are tabulated, edited, and analyzed to provide data sensitive enough to detect a decrease [in c] of the size claimed by Setterfield and Norman.
The behavior of the atomic constants and the velocity of light, c, indicate that atomic phenomena, though constant when measured in atomic time, are subject to variation in dynamical time.

 Velocity Effects on Aerodynamic Forces   (Site not responding. Last check: )
From Newton's second law of motion, the aerodynamic forces on the body (lift and drag) are directly related to the change in momentum of the fluid with time.
The velocity used in the lift and drag equations is the relative velocity between an object and the flow.
You can further investigate the effect of velocity and the other factors affecting lift by using the FoilSim II Java Applet.
