What does velocity divided by the time interval equal?

It equals an undefined entity. The average acceleration of an object equals the CHANGE in velocity divided by the time interval. The term "change in velocity" is not the same as the term "velocity", "average velocity", or "instantaneous velocity".

Acceleration is defined as the change in?

velocity divided by the time interval

Is distance divided by time equals equals to velocity?

Yes, V (velocity) = d (distance) divided by t (time).

Is Acceleration is the magnitude of average velocity?

No. Acceleration is (change of velocity) divided by (time interval in which it changed). If velocity doesn't change, then there is no acceleration.

What equals to the constant velocity needed to cover the given displacement in a given time interval?

The required velocity is the given displacement/the given time intervalin the direction from the starting point to the end point.

Accelaration is defined as change in velocity divide by what?

Divided by time.Average acceleration is (change in velocity) / (time interval) Instantaneous acceleration is calculated by making the time interval very small. This is written as dv/dt.

Equation for calculating average velocity from displacement and time interval?

a=dv/dt average velocity = displacement divided by time take. so average velocity = displacement/time taken.

What is the change in velocity by the time interval?

A change in velocity over a time interval is called an acceleration if the velocity is increasing, or a decelleration if the velocity is decreasing.

How do you find time with velocity and acceleration given?

Time equals velocity divided by acceleration. t=v/a

Velocity divided by time?

Acceleration equals velocity divided by time i.e a=v/t The S.I unit of Acceleration is m/s2

What do you need to know to describe velocity?

distance divided by time equals velocity... D/T=V Distance divided by time equals velocity.. D/T= V as in: Furlongs per fortnight V = d / t The average velocity of an object is given by the distance traveled divided by the time it took.

What is Galileo's formula with distance accleraction and time?

distance equals initial velocity times change in time interval plus half of accerlation plus time interval squared

What is accelaraton?

Is a change in velocity (increase/decrease). It also equals; final velocity-initial velocity divided by time

Is accleration equal to velocity divided by time?

Yes acceleration equals velocity divided by time i.e a=v/t and it's S.I unit is m/s2

How do you find velocity with charge and joule?

The formula to find velocity is: V = D. (VELOCITY equals distance divided by time) T

What is the change in velocity divided by the time interval in which the change occured?

It is acceleration. The difference between final velocity and initial velocity, divided by the time is the AVERAGE acceleration. Remember, though that velocity is a vector. So if you are going round in a circle at a constant speed, your direction of motion is changing continuously and so you are always accelerating!

What is the Instantaneous velocity?

Instantaneous velocity is the velocity in difference displacement in shortest time or specific time interval.

How do you find the average speed of an item over a given time?

Average velocity is change in position (displacement) divided by the interval.

If the velocity is zero for a time interval is the accelaration zero at any instant within the time interval?

Yes, but only if the instantaneous velocity remains zero during the time inerval. If you are speaking of average velocity over an interval, all bets are off.

What equation can you use to find acceleration?

Acceleration equals the change in the velocity divided by time. The change in the velocity is found by subtracting the initial velocity from the final velocity. It is written as "a equals delta v over t."

What are the difference of instantaneous velocity and average velocity?

Average velocity in a direction is calculated as the displacement in that direction divided by the total time taken. As the time interval is reduced, the displacement over that period also reduces and the limiting value of that ratio is the instantaneous velocity.

What is instantaneous velocity of a body in terms of its average velocity?

The instantaneous velocity is the limit of the average velocity, as the time interval tends to zero. If you are not familiar with limits, basically you make the time interval very small and calculate the average velocity.

The distanca traveled divided by the time interval during which the motion occurred is called what?

That would be speed, or if it's in a specific direction, velocity.

When is the average velocity is equal to the instantaneous velocity?

At a small time interval, the average velocity is approximately equal to the instantaneous velocity. However, the values of the average velocity and the instantaneous velocity approach each other , as the length of the time interval is decreased more and more.
