I went with "la rapidez" rather than "la velocidad" (and lost a heart). What is the difference?

to me mind the difference is that you are correct. velocity is speed and direction. Whereas speed is speed. To be loose with the terms if they wan, most people are, but they should not mark wrong a correct translation.

La diferencia entre velocidad y rapidez es que la velocidad tiene un carácter vectorial y la rapidez es una magnitud de carácter escalar.

I quoted this from http://es.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapidez, which also deals with "celeridad".
