The displacements of the particle at different times. Velocity is the rate of change of displacement.

You cannot. Velocity has nothing to do with volume and information on area, by itself, is not enough to determine the volume.

It looks as if you don't have enough information. To determine the average acceleration between two points in time, you need to know the beginning velocity, the ending velocity, and how much time elapsed.

You can't, because you don't have enough information. In order to find velocity, you need to be able to find the speed and the direction of motion. You have the speed, but you have no information that you can use to determine the direction in which the object is moving. Mass doesn't help.

You need the speed and velocity +++ They are equivalent save that speed is a scalar and velocity a vector. You need intervals of time and distance.

Velocity= a speed and a direction The speed is 15 km/hr You still need a direction to make a velocity.

You need to know your change of position vs. change of time.

You need to know its direction. Put that togetherwith the speed, and you'll have the velocity.

As with many problems, scientists use a formula to determine maximum velocity. You need to know the velocity of the object and the time Then set the acceleration rate to O. You need to solve for time to figure out the amount of velocity in that period of time.

The simplest answer is the velocity of an object at a given time. It is also possible to determine the acceleration and displacement - but only in the same direction as the velocity. No information on motion in a transverse direction can be determined.

no, you need to know its initial velocity to determine this; if initial velocity is zero then distance is 1/2 acceleration x time squared

You don't. Velocity is not directly related to mass, and you can't calculate velocity just from a displacement measurement. You need some more information.

Speed and direction determine an object's velocity.

That's not enough information. You need some additional information to calculate the mass.

initial velocity, angle of launch, height above ground When a projectile is launched you can calculate how far it travels horizontally if you know the height above ground it was launched from, initial velocity and the angle it was launched at. 1) Determine how long it will be in the air based on how far it has to fall (this is why you need the height above ground). 2) Use your initial velocity to determine the horizontal component of velocity 3) distance travelled horizontally = time in air (part 1) x horizontal velocity (part 2)

the two factors that determine an object's velocity is SPEED and DIRECTION.By: Arjane Lee Lagasca

angle of projection,initial velocity and gravitational acceleration

Momentum = (mass) times (velocity)mass = (Momentum) divided by (velocity)

All you need to know is the distance the marble travelled and how long it took to travel that distance. For example, if a marble travels 30 cm in 5 seconds then its average velocity would be 30 / 5 cm / sec = 6 cm / sec.

A velocity report is used to determine the speed at which products are sold at retail.

To calculate Average velocity: ( Vf - Vi ) / t Where Vf is Final Velocity Vi is Initial Velocity t is Time
