# Differentiate between velocity and acceleration.

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking for the differences between two key concepts in physics: velocity and acceleration. Velocity refers to the speed of an object in a particular direction, whereas acceleration is the rate at which the velocity of an object is changing over time.

Velocity is the rate of change of displacement, while acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.

The final answer is velocity is the rate of change of displacement, while acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.

The final answer is velocity is the rate of change of displacement, while acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.

Velocity is a vector quantity, meaning it has both magnitude (speed) and direction. Acceleration is also a vector quantity, indicating how the velocity of an object changes over time.

#### Tips

A common mistake is to confuse speed with velocity. Speed is a scalar quantity and does not include direction, whereas velocity does.
