Velocity refers to the speed in a given direction. Velocity refers to a vector measurement of the rate and direction of motion. The scalar or the absolute value magnitude of the velocity vector is the speed of the motion. Velocity is denoted by the symbol 'v'. Velocity is a vector physical quantity; both magnitude and direction are required to define it.

Velocity Calculation

Table of Contents:

Formula

**Velocity :**

v = v_{0} + at

**Initial Velocity :**

v_{0} = v − at

**Acceleration :**

a = v − v_{0}/t

**Time :**

t = v − v_{0}/a

**Where,**

v = Velocity,

v_{0} = Initial Velocity

a = Acceleration,

t = Time.

Velocity is defined as the rate and direction of the change in the position of an object. The advanced online Velocity Calculator is used to calculate the velocity when initial velocity, acceleration and time are known.

**Example:**

Calculate the velocity of an object for the given details.

Initial Velocity (v_{0}) = 10 m/s

Acceleration (a) = 5 m/s^{2}

Time (t) = 15 sec

**Solution:**

**Apply Formula:**

v = v_{0} + at

v = 10 +5*15

v = 10+75

v = 85 m/s

**Velocity (v) = 85 m/s**
