Velocity

As a test pilot for the Quarp Drive project, you are the only hope for citizens stranded on the edge of the Toron nebula after the star Vilio began to fold into a black hole. Only one prototype craft exists, so you will be going in solo, but unfortunately you will not be alone for long. Warring forces have deployed ships to take advantage of this crisis, raiding stranded vessels for precious materials and technologies. You'll need masterful management of your piloting skills in order to survive this mission, as the black hole of Vilio will constantly be pulling you towards it. Luckily, your Quarp Jet craft has abilities previously thought unimaginable, including a Teleport function that will allow you to deliver rescued souls to safety.

Velocity is the rate of change of the displacement, the difference between the final and initial position of an object. Velocity is equivalent to a specification of its speed and direction of motion, e.g. 60km/h to the north. Velocity is an important concept in kinematics, the branch of classical mechanics which describes the motion of bodies.

Velocity is a vector physical quantity; both magnitude and direction are required to define it. The scalar absolute value (magnitude) of velocity is called "speed", a quantity that is measured in metres per second (m/s or ms) in the SI (metric) system. For example, "5 metres per second" is a scalar (not a vector), whereas "5 metres per second east" is a vector.

If there is a change in speed, direction, or both, then the object has a changing velocity and is said to be undergoing an acceleration.


Questions & Answers

  • Describe velocity?

    velocity

    velocity is the rate of change of displacement in unit time velocity is a vector,which has both direction as well as a magnitue. displacement is also a vector, i.e if you travel 3 m east and then 4 m north,your displacement from the starting point is 5 m divide this by the time that is the velocity

  • What is VELOCITY explain?

    Velocity

    Velocity is defined as the rate of change in position in a specific direction. These are the three components of velocity, rate of change, change in position and direction. The rate of change in position of an object is actually the speed. We can therefore say that velocity is speed in a particular direction. Any activity lacking one of the two components will always result in zero velocity. When expressing velocity it incorporates both components of speed and direction and is displayed as meters per seconds in a direction. An example is 5m/s, West.

  • Drift velocity?

    how drift velocity produce current?

    Drift velocity is the net motion of charged particles moving as a group in the direction of an electric force. We can see that drift velocity is directly related to current if we consider a conductor with cross-sectional area A and an electric field E directed from left to right. If we consider the case when all the charges are positive, then the drift velocity, vd, is in the direction of the electric field. In a short time, dt, the charges will have moved a distance, vd*dt. Therefore, the particles would have occupied a volume of A*vd*dt during this time. If the number of particles per unit volume is n, and the charge on each particle is q, then the total charge, dQ = q*n*A*vd*dt The current,I, is just the time derivative of charge, therefore I = dQ/dt = q*n*A*vd So we see that current is directly proportional to drift velocity.

  • Instantaneous velocity?

    What is the instantaneous velocity of a freely falling object 10 s after it is released from a position of rest? answer in m/s What is its average velocity during this interval?

    Instantaneous Velocity Definition: Instantaneous velocity is defined mathematically: v $\displaystyle\equiv$ $\displaystyle\lim_{\Delta t \rightarrow 0}^{}$$\displaystyle{\frac{\Delta x}{\Delta t}}$ (2) Example: Table 2.1 gives data on the position of a runner on a track at various times. Table 2.1: Position and time for a runner. t(s) x(m) 1.00 1.00 1.01 1.02 1.10 1.21 1.20 1.44 1.50 2.25 2.00 4.00 3.00 9.00 Find the runner's instantaneous velocity at t = 1.00 s. As a first estimate, find the average velocity for the total observed part of the run. We have, $\displaystyle\bar{v}$ = $\displaystyle{\frac{\Delta x}{\Delta t}}$ = $\displaystyle{\frac{9.00 {\:\rm m} - 1.00 {\:\rm m}}{3.00 {\:\rm s} -1.00 {\:\rm s} }}$ = 4 m/s. (3) From the definition of instantaneous velocity Eq.(2.2), we can get a better approximation by taking a shorter time interval. The best approximation we can get from this data gives, $\displaystyle\bar{v}$ = $\displaystyle{\frac{\Delta x}{\Delta t}}$ = $\displaystyle{\frac{1.02 \;{\:\rm m} - 1.00 \;{\:\rm m}}{1.01 \;{\:\rm s} -1.00 \;{\:\rm s}}}$ = 2 m/s. (4) We can interpret the instantaneous velocity graphically as follows. Recall that the average velocity is the slope of the line joining P and Q (from Figure 2.1). To get the instantaneous velocity we need to take $\Delta$t $\rightarrow$ 0, or P $\rightarrow$ Q. When P $\rightarrow$ Q, the line joining P and Q approaches the tangent to the curve at P (or Q). Thus the slope of the tangent at P is the instantaneous velocity at P. Note that if the trajectory were a straight line, we would get v = $\bar{v}$ , the same for all t . Note: * Instantaneous velocity gives more information than average velocity. * The magnitude of the velocity (either average or instantaneous) is referred to as the speed.

  • What is instantaneous velocity?

    What is instantaneous velocity, and how can you tell acceleration from look at a graph?

    Instantaneous velocity is the velocity at any given instant. If you are traveling at a constant velocity (say 55 mph on a straight stretch of highway), then your instantaneous velocity is the same (it is 55 mph as long as you don't change speed or direction). Now let's say you accelerate from 0 feet per second (you are stopped) to 100 feet per second over a period of 10 seconds. Then your acceleration would be 10 ft/sec/sec (read as 10 feet per second per second). That just means that every second, your speed increases by 10 feet/second. So, at 1 second, your instantaneous velocity would be 10 feet/second. At 2 seconds, your instantaneous velocity would be 20 feet/second, and so on until you reached 100 feet/second after 10 seconds. If you have a graph of velocity vs. time, you can get the acceleration from the slope of the curve. This is also known as the derivative of the velocity curve.

  • Velocity??

    How do I calculate an object's velocity?

    Velocity is a vector, and has a direction associated with it, as well as a value (the speed). Speed is distance divided by time, so it you drive 60 miles in an hour, your average speed is 60 mph. If that 60 miles is north of where you started, your velocity is 60 mph in a N direction. Or in vector notation, V = 60mph ∠90º In common use, velocity is often used where speed is the correct term.

  • Facts about terminal velocity?

    Bit boring i know, but anyone know any interesting facts about terminal velocity and/or aerodynamics?? Thanks :D

    Terminal velocity is the term for the state an object reaches when the force of drag acting on it is equal to the force of gravity acting on it. When an object reaches its terminal velocity, it no longer accelerates, remaining at whatever velocity it was already traveling or else slowing down. As an object accelerates, the amount of drag exerted on it increases. This means that more force is necessary to sustain the same level of acceleration. If that external force is increasing, as in a car or plane, then the object can be accelerated well past its terminal velocity. If, however, the only force being exerted on it is the force of gravity, then eventually the drag will become as great as the static force of gravity, and the object will cease to accelerate. An object may also decelerate towards terminal velocity, if it was initially moving faster than terminal velocity. This may be because it entered from somewhere with less drag, such as the thinner upper atmosphere, or because it was initially launched with some external force other than gravity at a greater velocity. In this way, terminal velocity can be viewed as a sort of equilibrium point that objects in freefall naturally gravitate towards. This will probably help you. :)

  • More velocity?

    what is the difference between constant velocity and changing velocity?

    Velocity is displacement per unit time. Note that both displacement and velocity are vectors. Hence if there is no change in displacement with time , it represents or means 'Constant Velocity' or uniform velocity. Whenever there is a change in displacement with time a change in velocity occurs. Hope it is clear.!

  • What is terminal velocity?

    What exactly is the speed of terminal velocity. I know all objects reach it at some point, but is this exact speed known?

    The terminal velocity is the constant speed attained by a body while falling through a fluid (liquid or gas). "A free falling object achieves its terminal velocity when the downward force of gravity (Fg)equals the upward force of drag (Fd). This causes the net force on the object to be zero, resulting in an acceleration of zero. Mathematically an object asymptotically approaches and can never reach its terminal velocity. As the object accelerates (usually downwards due to gravity), the drag force acting on the object increases. At a particular speed, the drag force produced will equal the object's weight (mg). Eventually, it plummets at a constant speed called terminal velocity (also called settling velocity). Terminal velocity varies directly with the ratio of drag to weight. More drag means a lower terminal velocity, while increased weight means a higher terminal velocity. An object moving downward with greater than terminal velocity (for example because it was affected by a downward force or it fell from a thinner part of the atmosphere or it changed shape) will slow until it reaches terminal velocity." As you can see, the terminal velocity of a body depends on many factors, like the mass of the body, density of the fluid, density of the body, gravitational acceleration, projected area of the body etc., and is not constant for a particular type of object. I hope that helps. :) me07.

  • What does it mean by velocity?

    A car travels 500 miles in an oval in 2.5 hour. The car's velocity is zero but how and what does that mean? What is velocity and how do you find it?

    Velocity is the same thing as speed, but it includes a direction. 10 miles per hour is a speed. 10 miles per hour toward the northeast is a velocity. You calculate velocity by determining a distance between two points, and dividing it by how long it takes you to get from one to the other. If you do this with two points far away from each other, you'll calculate an average velocity, but if you use two points very close together, you'll approximate your instantaneous velocity. Now, the car has a non-zero *instantaneous* velocity all the time it's moving around the 500 mile oval, but if it winds up back where it started, then the distance it covers is 0 miles. So, when you divide 0 miles by the time, 2.5 hours, you get an *average* velocity of 0 miles per hour. Instead of thinking about an oval, imagine a straight line. If you drive forward 250 miles, realize you forgot your wallet, and put it in reverse to drive back 250 miles, you'll wind up 0 miles from where you started. For average velocity, it doesn't matter whether you go in a straight line, an oval, or any other path. You just measure the straight line distance between the two points, and divide by the time it took to move from one to the other. On the other hand, for average speed (which doesn't include a direction), you would take the total distance traveled. A 500 mile oval in 2.5 hours is an average speed of 200 miles per hour. I hope that helps!
