Rate of motion; the relation of motion to time, measured by thenumber of units of space passed over by a moving body or point in aunit of time, usually the number of feet passed over in a second. Seethe Note under Speed. Angular velocity. See under Angular.-- Initial velocity, the velocity of a moving body at starting;especially, the velocity of a projectile as it leaves the mouth of afirearm from which it is discharged.-- Relative velocity, the velocity with which a body approaches orrecedes from another body, whether both are moving or only one.-- Uniform velocity, velocity in which the same number of units ofspace are described in each successive unit of time.-- Variable velocity, velocity in which the space described variesfrom instant, either increasing or decreasing; -- in the former casecalled accelerated velocity, in the latter, retarded velocity; theacceleration or retardation itself being also either uniform orvariable.-- Virtual velocity. See under Virtual.
Defined as the change in position of an object (displacement) per unit of time. Velocity, unlike speed, takes into account the direction of travel relative to a base point.
v = s/t (where v and s are vectors)
Where (using SI units):
v is the velocity of the body in metres per second (ms^-1)
s is the displacement of the body in metres (m)
t is the time taken to travel from the initial point to the final point in seconds (s)
Change in position over change in time. A measure of how fast something is moving. Measured in m/s, ft/s, mph or km/h.

Smackdown's version of Heat where it mostly features Cruiserweight action with such cruiserweights as Paul London, Billy Kidman, Spike Dudley, Funaki, Akio, etc.
