The Average Velocity calculator computes the velocity (V) based on the change in position (Δx) and the change in time (Δt).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your units for length (e.g. feet or meters) and time (e.g. minutes or days) and enter the following:
Velocity(v): The calculator computes the velocity in meters per second (m/s). However this can be automatically converted to numerous other velocity units (e.g. mph) via the pull-down menu.
The formula for average velocity is:
v = Δx / Δt
In vector notation this can also be represented as the difference between two position vectors separated in time:
`|v_"Avg"|` = `(|Deltavecr|)/(Deltat) = |vecr_2 - vecr_1| / (t_2 - t_1)`
