Speed | Velocity |

Speed of a body is the distance traveled per unit time | Velocity of a body is the displacement produced per unit time |

Speed is a scalar quantity, that is, speed does not tell anything about direction of motion | Velocity is a vector quantity, that is, it tells us that in which direction the body moves |

Speed is always positive | Velocity can be negative |

Speed is a velocity without direction $$Speed=\cfrac { Distance\quad Travelled }{ Time\quad Taken } $$ | Velocity is speed with direction $$Velocity=\cfrac{Displacement}{Time Takne}$$ |

Speed is path dependent | Velocity is path independent |
