Velocity is a measure of the displacement of an object divided by the time it took to travel that distance. Velocity is commonly measured in meters per second, though other units can be used. More »

In projectile motion, horizontal velocity is the rate at which an object is traveling parallel to the earth. Scientists calculate horizontal velocity using the formula v = d/t, the same formula used to determine the spee... More »

An object is said to have uniform velocity if the direction of motion and the rate at which the object changes its position is constant. In other words, an object with uniform velocity continues to cover the same amount ... More »

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 »

The scientific definition of distance describes the length of a line between two points, or how far apart two objects are. The scalar measurement uses the curved line of the path between two locations as opposed to a vec... More »

The scientific definition of "weight" is the amount of force the acceleration of gravity exerts on an object. The formula for finding the weight of an object is mass multiplied by the acceleration of gravity. More »

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 »
