Can The Speed Of A Body Be Negative?

Answer:

Speed of a body cannot be negative because speed is a scalar quantity. Speed is given as:

Speed = Distance travelled/Time taken

The ratio of distance travelled and the time taken by a body can be zero but not negative.

Since distance and time are positive quantities and speed is obtained by the ratio of these two quantities, speed cannot be negative.
