Wor(l)d of the Present: VELOCITY

V E L O C I T Y

Whereas speed is a scalar value, velocity has an extra attribute in that it is directional, a vector. And basically, when not influenced an object will continue at the same speed and direction indefinitely. Now that goes for non-autonomous objects, like rocks and planets.

We humans are a different category altogether: we hardly ever go in straight lines, and the influences we act upon can be very varied in nature.
