## Resultant Velocity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a resultant velocity.

Vm = Sum Sqrt(Vxi^2+VYj^2)

- Where Vm is the resultant velocity magnitude
- Vxi are all of the x-component of velocities
- Vyj are all of the y-component of velocities

To calculate the magnitude of the resultant velocity, add together all of x-component values and square the result. Do the same for the y-components, then add this to the previous value. Finally, take the square root of that result to get the magnitude.

Va = Tan^-1 (Vx/Vy)

- Where Va is the angle of the resultant velocity
- Vx is the magnitude of the x-component of the resultant velocity
- Vy is the magnitude of the y-component of the resultant velocity

## Resultant Velocity Definition

A resultant velocity is the equivalent velocity of the combination of 2 or more velocities in different directions.

## Is resultant velocity the same as final velocity?

The resultant velocity on a system can be considered the same as the final velocity. The resultant velocity is another word for net velocity.

## How to calculate resultant velocity?

To calculate the resultant velocity, first, you must break up each individual velocity into its magnitude and direction vector. Then break down each velocity into x and y components. Next, add together all of the x components and add together all of the y components. From these final x and y components, calculate the magnitude and direction of the resultant velocity.
