Horizontal Velocity Calculator

The velocity or speed of an object traveling in a horizontal motion in the absence of acceleration gravity and force is called as the horizontal velocity. The horizontal velocity does not change in projectile motion. However, the forces of gravity give the object vertical acceleration, causing it to stop when it hits the ground. Calculate the horizontal velocity of an object using this horizontal velocity calculator projectile motion using the values of distance and time.

Formula:

Horizontal Velocity (V) = Distance Travelled / Time Taken

Example

If a car travels 120 km at a time period of 1800 seconds. What is its horizontal velocity?

Solution:

Horizontal Velocity (V) = Distance Travelled / Time Taken
V = 120 / 1800
= 66.6667m/s
