Initial velocity


Also found in: Medical, Acronyms, Encyclopedia.
the velocity of a moving body at starting; especially, the velocity of a projectile as it leaves the mouth of a firearm from which it is discharged.

I have looked at the question in all its bearings, I have resolutely attacked it, and by incontrovertible calculations I find that a projectile endowed with an initial velocity of 12,000 yards per second, and aimed at the moon, must necessarily reach it.
81 N / kg, we generated a graph based on the above equation, which shows for each throwing angle the initial velocity required for the ball to penetrate through the center of the ring (the generation was based on 90 points, one corresponding to each angle from 1 [degrees] to 90 [degrees], using the special program of origin 7).
0] is the initial velocity of the polymer melt, D0 is initial diameter of the polymer melt, and [T.
Next, the participants followed a circular experimental turning course where the initial velocity was 20 km/h at the beginning of the 15 m radius turn to the left while utilizing a fixed front steering angle of 11 deg, and where acceleration gradually increased at 0.
One reason for this may be that a larger initial velocity makes the distance enlarge much faster, thus larger restoring force, that is, the summation of gravitational and centrifugal forces, is produced and drives the system swing back towards local vertical.
For drop jumps, maximum height (in cm), initial velocity (in m/s), and jump angle (in radians) were measured for each jump, while for wedge jumps only initial velocity and maximum height were measured, as jump angle should be controlled largely by the angle of the wedge (Spagna et ah, 2009), which was static.
Dynamic crack propagation with the detection of fracture toughness criteria is predicted brittle failure with initial velocity.
At the beginning of simulation, particles were distributed randomly over the computational domain and their initial velocity was set equal to that of fluid in the particle initial position.
Serve velocity decreases at the moment when a player makes a contact with the ball by 60-70% compared to its initial velocity (Coe, 2000).
For each trial, according to Beer's law, the change in the concentration of ATP was calculated and used to determine the initial velocity of ClpB.
Figure 1 below depicts a fluid (air, water, and so on) traveling at an initial velocity.
