A car travels at a speed of 60 km/hr due north and the other at a speed of 60 km/hr due east. Are the velocities equal? If no, which one is greater? If you find any of the questions irrelevant, explain.
No, as the directions of the cars are different, their velocities are not equal, as velocity is a vector quantity.
We cannot compare velocities on the basis of direction only, so the question is irrelevant.
