Average Force

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

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

FORMULA

\(\bar F =  m  \frac { \left( v_f \;-\; v_i \right) } {t}  \) 

\(\bar F =  m  \frac { \Delta v } {t}  \)

Where:

\(\bar F\) = average force

\(m\) = mass

\(v_f\) = final velocity

\(v_i\) = initial velocity

\(\Delta v\) = velocity differential

\(t\) = time
