Just being 'in space' does not determine an object's velocity. It can have any allowable speed.


Once again, a force is not associated with a velocity, but with a change in velocity. And that's only x mph.

As far as your velocity is concerned, that depends on what you are measuring it with respect to. With respect to the earth's surface, it would be x mph. With respect to the earth's center, it would be 1000 + x mph. With respect to the Sun, something else entirely. And so on.
change in velocity is being 1000miles in east to 5 miles in west. also with earths center my v would be zero as the displacement is zero.
