Are the Scrum teams' commitments influenced by Velocity?

This is some text inside of a div block.

A team’s velocity should be taken into account at the start of the sprint planning process, otherwise it doesn’t make sense to track.

Velocity is an indication of the development team’s work rate. For example, with a velocity of 25 they know how to gauge the number of Story Points that they will take into the sprint. However, the team will only get a real sense of how much work they can do in the next sprint once they break up the stories into smaller tasks. Their velocity will guide them as to how much work they will take on.
