Initial Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

 Initial velocity, abbreviated as \(v_i\), is the starting point at which motion begins.

Initial Velocity Formula

(Eq. 1)  \(\large{ v_i = v_f - a \; t }\)           

(Eq. 2)  \(\large{ v_i = \frac { s }{ t }  - \frac { 1 }{ 2 }\; a \; t }\)        

Where:

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

\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration

\(\large{ s }\) = displacement

\(\large{ t }\) = time taken

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