Solution

Velocity: The pace at which an object's position changes in relation to a frame of reference and time is what is meant by velocity. Although it may appear sophisticated, velocity is just the act of moving quickly in one direction. Since it is a vector quantity, the definition of velocity requires both magnitude (speed) and direction.$Velocity=\frac{Displacement}{Time}$Its SI equivalent is the meter per second $\left(m{s}^{-1}\right)$. A body is considered to be accelerating if the magnitude or direction of its velocity changes.The applications of velocity are illustrated by the examples below:Earth's rotation around the Sun,Moon's orbital motion around the Earth.The vehicle's speed.How quickly the train is moving.The river is moving at a fluctuating speed.The rate at which water leaves a faucet.The speed at which a bat strikes a ball.
