Average Force

Average force is used when the velocity was not measured precisely.

Average Force FORMULA

\(\bar F =  m  \frac {  v_f \;-\; v_i  } {t}  \)          \( average \; force  \;=\;    mass \;  \frac { final \; velocity \;-\; initial \; velocity  } { time }  \) 

\(\bar F =  m  \frac { \Delta v } {t}  \)          \( average \; force  \;=\;   mass  \frac { velocity \; differential } { time }  \)

Where:

\(\bar F\) = average force

\(m\) = mass

\(t\) = time

\(\Delta v\) = velocity differential

\(v_f\) = final velocity

\(v_i\) = initial velocity
