Average Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

The average velocity is the average of any given velocities where the acceleration is constant. It is abbreviated as v bar (\(\bar {v}\) ).  The calculation for average velocity with zero accleration is shown below. 

\(\large{ \bar {v}= \frac { 1  } { 2 }  \left( v_i \;+\; v_f   \right)   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \bar {v}  }\) = average velocity

\(\large{ v_f  }\) = final velocity

\(\large{ v_i  }\) = initial velocity
