- Q4What's the difference between speed and velocity?Velocity is always faster than speedThere is no differenceSpeed includes directionVelocity includes direction30s
- Q5If a car is moving in a circular track, which statement is true?The car has neither constant speed nor constant velocityThe car has a constant velocityThe car has variable speed and constant velocityThe car has a constant speed but changing velocity30s
- Q6In which case does an object have zero velocity?When the object is moving at a constant speed in a straight lineWhen the object is acceleratingWhen the object is at restWhen the object's speed is increasing30s
- Q7A person walks 3 km to the East, then turns and walks 4 km to the North. Which statement about the person's motion is true?The person's speed is less than their velocityThe person's total distance is greater than their displacementThe person's displacement is greater than their total distanceThe person's total distance is equal to their displacement30s
- Q8A train moves 60 meters in 2 seconds in a linear track. What is the train's speed and velocity?The speed is 30 m/s and the velocity is -30 m/sBoth the speed and velocity are 30 m/sBoth the speed and velocity are -30 m/sThe velocity is 30 m/s and the speed is -30 m/s30s
- Q9A car moves in a straight line and covers 60 km in 2 hours. Then, the car returns using the same route and arrives at the initial point in 3 hours. What is the car's average speed and average velocity for the whole trip?Both average speed and average velocity are 20 km/hrAverage speed is 0 km/hr and average velocity is 20 km/hrAverage speed is 20 km/hr and average velocity is 30 km/hrAverage speed is 20 km/hr and average velocity is 0 km/hr30s
