Enter the initial position, final position, and time into the calculator to determine the constant velocity.

Constant Velocity Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Constant Velocity.

V = (X2 – X1) / t

  • Where V is the constant velocity (distance/second)
  • X2 is the final position (distance)
  • X1 is the initial position (distance)
  • t is the time (seconds)

What is a Constant Velocity?

Definition:

A constant velocity is a term used to describe an object under motion in which the object is neither accelerating nor decelerating.

How to Calculate Constant Velocity?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Constant Velocity.

First, determine the initial position. In this example, the initial position is found to be 5.

Next, determine the final position. For this problem, the final position is found to be 15.

Next, determine the time. In this case, the time is measured to be 2s.

Finally, calculate the Constant Velocity using the formula above:

V = (X2 – X1) / t

V = (15 – 5) / 2

V = 5 distance /second
