# Is there a name for an object with both position and velocity?

I know of "position vectors" and "velocity vectors". I'm looking for the name of an object which contains both a position vector and velocity vector, if such a name exists?

• @Sebastian, so for example a point in phase space might be $p=(x,y,u,v)$, where $(x,y)$ is position and $(u,v)$ is velocity. Thank you. – Pixel Mar 11 '15 at 18:22
• yes, if you are considering a 2 dimensional problem – Achilles Mar 11 '15 at 18:23
• Classical space $\text{$\pi: $TM}\to M$ the tangent-bundle. E.g. Abraham/Marsden: Foundations of Mechanics. – Frieder Mar 11 '15 at 19:57
