Enter any speed into the calculator to convert into a velocity.

Speed to Velocity Formula

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

V = S

  • Where V is the velocity
  • S is the speed

Speed and velocity are used synonymously, therefore, they are equal.

Use the unit converter to switch between units of speed.

How to Calculate Velocity from Speed?

Example Problem:

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

First, determine the speed. In this example, the speed is found to be 500 ft/s.

The next step is to realize that speed and velocity are the same, so the velocity is also 500 ft/s.
