Hey Aneesh! I am astrosonu - Velocity is not really speed ok. Speed means distance * time. Velocity is driving at a speed in a curve road.
And speed means how fast it goes. There are many types of velocities - Constant, changing, istant, terminal which you will study in higher classes. SI unit of velocity is metre per second.
Do you want more info! Hey rate my answer you kanjoos!!!!!

Velocity is described as a vector that has magnitude and direction. Also associated with the change in direction of an object at a certain speed. Velocity is defined as rate = distance over time. If something goes farther in a short amount of time, the rate increases. If something a shorter distance in a longer time, the rate decreases. Overall, velocity deals with how fast an object is going a certain distance in the amount of time.

Velocity is simply speed in a given direction. Speed is defined as dist/time, so velocity would be dist/time with a direction (ex. westward.)

velocity is the displacement in unit time
to calculate (v=displacement/time)
velocity is not speed its a wrong statement. speed is distance travelled in unit time.
velocity is a vector quantity which has magnitude and direction.
hope its clear now ! :)
