There is a bug who moves from point A to point B and then finally to C in 5 seconds. Are the speed and velocity of the bug Different?

Expert Answer

Physically, speed and velocity are different in the sense that the former is scalar, whereas the latter is a vector.

However, in terms of magnitude, in this case, both are equal.
Magnitude of velocity = speed =
This is because the bug happens to move along a straight line and does not turn back, in other words, does not change direction during its travel from A to C.
