Distance traveled vs. time used.
The average velocity of an object can be expressed as
v = ds / dt (1)
v = average velocity of object (m/s, ft/s)
ds = distance traveled (m, ft)
dt = time taken (s)
Example - Average Velocity
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
Motion - velocity and acceleration, forces and torque.
Useful equations related to acceleration, average velocity, final velocity and distance traveled.
Cylinder volume and compression ratios in piston engines.
Convert between common velocity and speed units.
Convert between speed and velocity units like m/s, km/h, knots, mph and ft/s.
