Step by Step Calculation

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

The average velocity is defined as the ratio of total displacement to total time.


Average velocity:


Va=1/2 ( V0+V)


Initial Velocity :


V0 = 2*Va-v .


Velocity :


v = 2*Va- V0



Step 2 :  

State the equation you plan to use and plug in the values.

  1. If a body has an initial velocity of 2 m/s and at the end of 5 seconds from the instant the initial velocity is noted, its velocity is 10 m/s, find the average velocity of the body.


    Step 1 :  

    The given:


    Initial velocity (V0)  = 2 m/s


    Velocity (v) = 10 m/s


    Average velocity (Va) = ?



    Step 2 :  

    Plug the value in the formula.


    Average velocity:


    Va=1/2 ( V0+V) .


    Va= 1/2 (10 + 2).


    Va= 12/2.



    Answer  :  

    Va= 6 m/s



  2. If a particle moves along a straight line distance of 29 m in time of 5 sec and a distance 55m in time of 14 sec.Calculate the average velocity of a particle.


    Step 1 :  

    Given

    Particle moves in a straight line, when t = 5 sec

    Then the distance of the particle is s = 29 m

    Next it will be moving in the straight line, when t = 14 sec

    Then the particle is moved to the distance of 55 m

    To calculate the average velocity of a particle, we use this formula



    Step 2 :  

    Average velocity:


    Va= Total displacement / Total time.


    Total displacement =Δs where Δs =( r2-r1 ), r2 = 55 , r1=29


    Total time = Δt where Δt = ( t2-t1 ), t2 = 14 , t1= 5 ,


    Va = Δs / Δt = ( r2-r1 ) / ( t2-t1 )


    Va = (55-29) / (14-5) .


    Va = 26/9 .



    Answer  :  

    Va = 2.89 m/s
