Average Velocity

Distance traveled vs. time used.

The average velocity of an object can be expressed as

v = ds / dt                          (1)

where

v = average velocity of object (m/s, ft/s)

ds = distance traveled (m, ft)

dt = time taken (s)

Example - Average Velocity

car average velocity speed

A car travels a distance of 60 km in one hour. Average velocity can be calculated as

v = (60 km) (1000 m/km)  / ((1 hour) (3600 s/hour))

    = 16.7 m/s

    = (16.7 m/s) (1/1000 km/m) (3600 s/h)

    = 60 km/h
