Average Acceleration

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Mechanics

FORMULA

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

Where:

\(\bar {a}\) = average acceleration

\(\Delta v\) = velocity differential \((v_f - v_i)  \)

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

\(v_f\) = final velocity

\(v_i\) = initial velocity

\(t_f\) = final time

\(t_i\) = initial time
