Rate of Change in Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

rate of change in velocity 1The 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

\(\large{ v_c = \frac {s}{t} }\) 

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

Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ v_c }\) = rate of change in velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec^2}}\)  \(\large{\frac{m}{s^2}}\) 
\(\large{ s }\) = displacement \(\large{ ft }\) \(\large{ m }\)
\(\large{ t }\) = time taken tor change in velocity \(\large{ sec }\) \(\large{ s }\)
\(\large{ v_f }\) = final velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\)  \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\) 
\(\large{ v_i }\) = initial velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\)  \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
