Enter the current velocity and the initial or base velocity into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Velocity Loss. 

Velocity Loss Formula

VL = CV / IV *100


  • VL is the Velocity Loss (%)
  • CV is the current velocity
  • IV is the initial or base velocity

To calculate the Velocity Loss percentage, divide the current velocity by the initial or base velocity, then multiply by 100.

How to Calculate Velocity Loss?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Velocity Loss.

  1. First, determine the current velocity. 
  2. Next, determine the initial or base velocity. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = VL = CV / IV *100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Velocity Loss.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

current velocity = 45

initial or base velocity = 90
