I was just confused on what formula i use to find instantaneous velocity if anyone can give me an example or explain how i figure it out that would be great. thanks!
The formula for calculating instantaneous velocity is v = lim Δt → 0 (Δx/Δt), where v is the instantaneous velocity, Δx is the change in position, and Δt is the change in time.
Instantaneous velocity is the velocity of an object at a specific moment in time, while average velocity is the total displacement divided by the total time elapsed.
Yes, the instantaneous velocity can be negative if the object is moving in the opposite direction of its initial motion.
The limit in the formula represents the idea of taking the average velocity over smaller and smaller time intervals, which gives a more accurate measurement of the instantaneous velocity at a specific moment in time.
The instantaneous velocity formula is used in physics and engineering to calculate the velocity of objects in motion, such as cars, projectiles, and satellites. It is also used in calculus to find the derivative of position with respect to time.
