The basic formula for velocity is v = d / t, where v is velocity, d is displacement and t is the change in time. Velocity measures the speed an object is traveling in a given direction. More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics

Average velocity is the result of dividing the distance an object travels by the time it takes to travel that far. The formula for calculating average velocity is therefore: final position - initial position/final time -... More » Math Calculus

The formula for average kinetic energy is one-half the mass times the square of the velocity. Using mathematical notation, the formula can be written as KE_avg = 1/2 x m x v^2, where KE_avg is the average kinetic energy,... More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics

Average velocity is the displacement of an object, divided by the time it took to cover that distance. Displacement is the straight line distance between the starting point and ending point of an object's motion. Velocit... More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics

The equation for velocity is displacement divided by time. The equations for speed and velocity are similar, but velocity must always have direction, whereas speed does not. More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics

Calculate average velocity by finding the quotient of the displacement and the total time elapsed. For problems concerning velocity, it is important that you consider the starting and ending position, especially if they ... More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics

While there are several formulas for angular acceleration, the basic equation is the change in angular velocity divided by the change in time. This relationship is shown in the following equation: (Av2 - Av1)/(T2 - T1). More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics
