Enter the total displacement and the total time into the calculator to determine the velocity from displacement.

Displacement to Velocity Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the velocity from displacement.

V = D / t
  • Where V is the velocity (m/s)
  • D is the displacement (m)
  • t is the time (s)

To calculate velocity from displacement, simply divide the displacement by the total time.

How to Calculate Velocity From Displacement?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate velocity from displacement.

First, determine the displacement. In this example, the displacement is found to be 310m.

Next, determine the time. In this case, the time is measured to be 10 seconds.

Finally, calculate the velocity using the formula above:

V = D / t

V = 310 / 10

V = 31 m/s
