Velocity is the sum of the estimates of delivered  per iteration.

Points from partially-completed or incomplete stories should not be counted in calculating velocity. Velocity should be tracked throughout the Sprint on the Sprint Burndown Chart and be made visible to all Team members. The slides below give a nice overview of how metrics are made visible.
Velocity is a key feedback mechanism for the Team. It helps them measure whether process changes they make are improving their productivity or hurting it. While a Team's velocity will oscillate from Sprint to Sprint, over time, a well-functioning Scrum Team's velocity should steadily trend upward by roughly 10% each Sprint.
Without Velocity, Release Planning is impossible. By knowing Velocity, a Product Owner can figure out how many Sprints it will take the Team to achieve a desired level of functionality that can then be shipped. Depending on the length of the Sprint, the Product owner can fix a date for the release.

Velocity is a measure of the amount of work a Team can tackle during a single Sprint and is the key metric in Scrum. Velocity is calculated at the end of the Sprint by totaling the Complexity Points for all fully completed User Stories in the sprint.
Without Velocity, Release Planning is impossible. By knowing Velocity, a Product Owner can figure out how many Sprints it will take the Team to achieve the desired level of functionality that can then be shipped.

Connected to the principle of iterative development, velocity in Agile is used to measure how much work can be completed in each iteration. It is widely used as a calibration tool to help development teams create accurate and efficient timelines.
Velocity in Agile is not meant to be used as a goal or benchmark to strive for because it is measured relatively depending on what makes the most sense for the team measuring it. While maintaining consistency is ideal, Agile velocity is meant to be used mainly as a planning tool.

Velocity is how much work of the product backlogs a team can handle in one sprint.

Points should be considered:
Team size
Project complexity.
Interruptions and multitasking of team resource.
Sprint duration.

Velocity in Agile is a simple calculation measuring units of work completed in a given timeframe. Units of work can be measured in several ways, including engineer hours, user stories, or story points.

What's the difference between sprint backlog and product backlog?

Sprint Backlog: It is generally owned by the development team. It only contains those features and requirements that are related to the specific sprint only. It is considered a subset of the product backlog. It is compiled of everything that must be done to complete a particular sprint. It only includes items that can be completed during each agile sprint. It is specific to the sprint goal only in a particular sprint.
Product Backlog: It is generally owned and maintained by the project owner. It usually contains each and every feature of the product as well as the requirements of the product. It is compiled to everything that must be done to complete the whole process. It just breaks down every item into a series of steps. It is more specific to the end goal of the product.
