 velocity is the rate of change of the position of an object (m/s).Water Waves change Reflection direction angle of incidence incident reflection plane angle of reflection normal Wavelength. a car moving at a constant 20 kilometres per hour in a circular path has a constant speed. V amplitude. A direction velocity. but does not have a constant velocity because its direction changes. f speed. For example. .  frequency.
