Initial Velocity

Initial Velocity 

Initial velocity ( \(v_i\) ) is the starting point at which motion begins.

Initial Velocity Formula

\(\large{ v_i = v_f \;-\; at }\)         

\(\large{ v_i^2 = v_f^2 \;-\; 2as }\)         

\(\large{ v_i = \frac { s }{ t }  \;-\; \frac { 1 }{ 2 } at }\)         

\(\large{ v_i = 2 \bar {v}  \;-\; v_f }\)         

Where:

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

\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration

\(\large{ s }\) = displacement

\(\large{ t }\) = time taken

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

\(\large{ v_f }\) = final velocity
