  11. The velocity of an object refers to the speed and direction in which it moves. If you drive north to your work place and your speedometer reads 35 miles per hour, then your velocity is 35 miles per hour in a northward direction. ...
  12. Rate of product movement through a warehouse.
  13. The time measurement of linear motion (flow) in a given direction. For example, water flowing 60 feet in a conduit each minute has a velocity of 60 feet per minute (fpm) or one foot per second ( 1 fps).
  14. The speed at which the floodwaters are moving. Typically, modeled velocities in a river or creek are quoted as the depth and width averaged velocity, i.e. the average velocity across the whole river or creek section.
