Average Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Mechanics

FORMULA

\(\bar {v}= \frac { \Delta  x  } { \Delta t }    \) 

Where:

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

\(\Delta x\) = position differential \((x_f - x_i) \)

\(\Delta t\) = time differential \((t_f - t_i)  \)

\(x_f\) = final position

\(x_i\) = initial position

\(t_f\) = final time

\(t_i\) = initial time
