# Distance - constant velocity

vCalc.Distance - constant velocity

The **Distance - Constant Velocity ** calculator uses the equation, dx= x_{0}+v_{0}⋅t, to compute the total linear displacement (distance travelled).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose the preferred units and enter the following;

- (
**x**) This is the initial displacement._{0} - (
**v**) This is the initial velocity._{0} - (
**t**) This is the duration of the motion or travel.

**Distance:** The calculator returns the distance in meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other length or distance units via the pull-down menu.

**Related Calculators:**

#### The Math / Science

* Motion under Constant Velocity *

This calculator computes the distance an object travels as a function of time traveling at a constant initial velocity with the addition of an initial displacement (distance). This equation ignores external forces and so the object continues its motion at its initial constant velocity, `v_0`, as an expression of Newton's First Law.

where:

- `v_0` - Initial velocity at time t = 0
- `x_0` - initial displacement at time t = 0
**t**- time of travel in the x-direction
