What Causes a Change in Velocity?


Velocity is made up of speed and direction. A change in velocity can be a result of varying forces. If the object changes its direction, or its speed the result will be a change in its velocity. An unbalance in force can also result in a change of velocity.

when the forces acting on the object are unbalanced.
Three things are commonly used to measure motion: displacement, velocity and acceleration. Displacement measures how far an object has traveled. Velocity measures how fast displacement
velocity consists of a direction and a speed. So if you have a change in direction and/or a change in speed the velocity will change.
An object will only accelerate if there is a net

What Are the Causes for a Change in Velocity?
Velocity, or a change in position over time, changes due to acceleration, which in turn is caused by the application of an external force. Velocity is expressed as a vector with both magnitude (speed) and direction, and therefore acceleration can cause... More »
