Instantaneous Velocity

on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Instantaneous velocity, abbreviated as \(v_i\), as the change in time approaches 0, is the velocity at a particular moment in time along its path.


Instantaneous Velocity formula

\( v_i = d l \;/\; d t \) 
Symbol English Metric
\( v_i \) = instantaneous velocity \(ft\;/\;sec\) \(m\;/\;s\)
\( d l \) = length or distance (derivative) \(ft\) \(m\)
\( d t \) = time differential (derivative) \(sec\) \(s\)
