2 Answer

  • The statement describes velocity
  • Answer:

    10 m/s to the north shows the velocity of an object.

    Explanation:

    The statement ''10 m/s to the north'' shows the velocity of an object. We know that velocity is a vector quantity and speed is scalar.

    In the given statement 10 m/s shows the speed of an object while north shows the direction of motion. We can say that,

    Speed + direction = velocity

    Hence, the given statement shows the velocity of an object.
