## What is Velocity?

Velocity is defined as: “The rate of displacement of a body is called its velocity.”The velocity tells us not only the speed of a body but also the direction along which the body is moving. The velocity of a body is a vector quantity. It is equal to the displacement of a body in unit time. And is represented as:

Velocity=displacement/time

V=d/t

**SI unit of velocity** is the same as speed i.e., meter per second.

### Uniform velocity

“A body has uniform velocity if it covers equal displacement in equal intervals of time however short the interval may be.”In equation( **d**=**v** t ) **v **is the average velocity of a body during time t. It is because the velocity of the body may be changing during the time interval. However, in many cases, the speed and direction of a body do not change. In such a case the body possesses uniform velocity. That is the velocity of a body during any interval of time has the same magnitude and direction.

“**Average velocity** is the total displacement covered in any direction in a total interval of time.” or ratio of total displacement to **time.**

### average velocity formula

Vav = (final velocity + initial velocity)/2
