Initial Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

initial velocity 1Initial velocity, abbreviated as \(v_i\), is the starting point at which motion begins.

 

Initial velocity formulas

\(\large{ v_i = v_f - a \; t }\) 

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

Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ v_i  }\) = initial velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec^2}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s^2}}\)
\(\large{ s }\) = displacement \(\large{ ft }\) \(\large{ m }\)
\(\large{ t }\) = time \(\large{ sec }\) \(\large{ s }\)
\(\large{ v_f  }\) = final velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
