# What is the difference between **constant velocity** and **uniform velocity**?

**Uniform velocity** implies constant speed but not constant direction, which means that only the magnitude of velocity increases with equal intervals of time.

Whereas,

**Constant velocity** implies constant speed without any changes in direction, which means the direction, as well as the magnitude of the velocity, remains constant.

**Both specify that there is no acceleration (since the magnitude of velocity is constant).**
