Velocity is not a change in speed or direction. Velocity is speed in a given direction.complex said:either way, the "change in speed or direction" was definatly velocity.

The answer is ACCELERATION. I don't understand why there's so much dispute over this question in particular. I think it's pretty bleeding obvious.
*Sigh*.mohdateeq said:The answer has to be velocity because accerleration is a measure of rate at which an object changes in speed and not direction. I ws also wondering whether dey wud mark da answer"FLASK" right because da actual answer ws "CONICAL FlASK"? Any ideas? I can't belive i got da sun question wrong (da asnwer ws TEMPERATURE).
wikipedia said:The velocity of an object is simply its speed in a particular direction. Since velocity is defined as a vector, both speed and direction are required to define it.
That's as simple as it gets. The answer is ACCELERATION. I don't see how this can be disputed. It asked for a change in speed and direction.wikipedia said:In physics or physical science, acceleration (symbol: a) is defined as the rate of change (or derivative with respect to time) of velocity.
Then why don't you go into the right one and not spam?james k said:hey i knowq im in the wrong forum
But how can you score marks for a question you haven't even answered? It asks for a POST-WAR period, not a PRE-WAR period. If you write about a pre-war event, it's not going to count.iEdd said:Then why don't you go into the right one and not spam?
EDIT: Okay, I'll answer your question for you anyway... My guess is that it's only a mark for it actually being post war, because people do (and always will) miss out some parts of a question. It's highly unlikely that you'll get zero.
james k said:hey i knowq im in the wrong forum but for history and the question that said wrote about the post war period,period after the war if u wrote a period beofre the war is it an automatic zero or do u still get marks for it soemone plz tell me im dying to know
Yeah, but even if his answer is correct to his topic...I doubt he'd get marks for it because that wasn't what the question was asking for.runnable said:i do not think you can get marks for that, cuz its like writing off-topic. However, i think if the marker is lenient, i think he/she might give you credit points if your answer was quite good on your topic. (I once got 5 credit marks on a 6 marks question although i misread the question and did the wrong thing but got the answers correct according to my topic.)
