Rate of Change in Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

The rate of change in velocity, abbreviated as \(v_c\), is the first derivative of velocity, the second derivative of position or the instantaneous change in velocity.  In physics, it is known as acceleration.

Rate of Change in Velocity formulas

\(\large{ v_c = \frac {s}{t} }\)   
\(\large{ v_c = \frac { v_f \;-\; v_i }{ t } }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ v_c }\) = rate of change in velocity

\(\large{ s }\) = displacement

\(\large{ t }\) = time taken tor change in velocity

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

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