What is the difference between speed and velocity?

velocity has direction and magnitude, speed has only magnitude.

velocity is speed with direction
An airplane is flying East at 300 miles per hour
Its speed is 300 miles per hour
Its velocity is 300 miles per hour East

Velocity is displacement divided by time, its a vector having both magnitude and direction
Speed is distance divided by time and
is scalar having a magnitude only.
ie. a man runs a race stopping at the finish line, hence 0 displacement and no velocity. He would have speed because he traveled a set distance divided by his time.
