Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4B. Velocity is a vector with direction an magnitude, thus if you change either of those quantities there is acceleration. Speed is a scalar quantity and isn't associated with a direction, thus if you change the speed you aren't necessarily changing the direction.
