## What does the slope of a velocity graph tell you?

The slope of a velocity graph represents the acceleration of the object. So, the value of the slope at a particular time represents the acceleration of the object at that instant.

## How is the slope of the velocity graph related to the acceleration?

It was learned earlier in Lesson 4 that the slope of the line on a velocity versus time graph is equal to the acceleration of the object. If the object is moving with an acceleration of +4 m/s/s (i.e., changing its velocity by 4 m/s per second), then the slope of the line will be +4 m/s/s.

## What does the slope of a position time graph tell you about the motion of an object?

The slope of a position graph represents the velocity of the object. So the value of the slope at a particular time represents the velocity of the object at that instant.

## What does the area of a velocity time graph gives?

Area under velocity-time graph gives the displacement of a moving object whereas slope of velocity-time graph gives the acceleration.

## Can a body have zero velocity and still be accelerating?

Yes, an object can have zero velocity and still be accelerating simultaneously.

## What is the equation for a velocity time graph?

time graph to determine velocity, we can use a velocity vs. time graph to determine position. We know that v = d/t. If we use a little algebra to re-arrange the equation, we see that d = v × t….

## What is the difference between speed and velocity?

The reason is simple. Speed is the time rate at which an object is moving along a path, while velocity is the rate and direction of an object’s movement. Put another way, speed is a scalar value, while velocity is a vector.

## How do you determine velocity?

Velocity (v) is a vector quantity that measures displacement (or change in position, Δs) over the change in time (Δt), represented by the equation v = Δs/Δt. Speed (or rate, r) is a scalar quantity that measures the distance traveled (d) over the change in time (Δt), represented by the equation r = d/Δt.

## What is the formula for velocity and acceleration?

Acceleration (a) is the change in velocity (Δv) over the change in time (Δt), represented by the equation a = Δv/Δt. This allows you to measure how fast velocity changes in meters per second squared (m/s^2). Acceleration is also a vector quantity, so it includes both magnitude and direction.

## What is the formula for final velocity?

Final velocity (v) of an object equals initial velocity (u) of that object plus acceleration (a) of the object times the elapsed time (t) from u to v. Use standard gravity, a = 9.80665 m/s2, for equations involving the Earth’s gravitational force as the acceleration rate of an object.

## How do you calculate water velocity?

Find the surface water velocity (in m/s) by dividing the distance from AA to BB (in this example, 10 m) by the average time (in seconds) and multiply this result by 0.85 (a correction factor) to estimate the average water velocity of the stream. Average water velocity = 0.5 m/s x 0.85 = 0.425 m/s.

## How do you convert flow rate to velocity?

Flow rate and velocity are related by Q=A¯v where A is the cross-sectional area of the flow and v is its average velocity.

## What is the maximum water velocity in pipe?

Water velocities in pipes and tubes should not exceed certain limits

Application | Maximum Velocity | |
---|---|---|

(m/s) | (ft/s) | |

Tap water | 1.0 – 2.5 | 3.3 – 8.2 |

Cooling water | 1.5 – 2.5 | 4.9 – 8.2 |

Suction boiler feed water | 0.5 – 1.0 | 1.6 – 3.3 |

## Is flow rate the same as velocity?

Flow is a measure of air output in terms of volume per unit of time. Velocity refers to how fast the air is moving in distance per unit of time. The common units are feet per second, metres per second, etc. Pressure is the measure of force applied on an area.

## What is the relation between flow rate and pressure?

Fluid velocity will change if the internal flow area changes. For example, if the pipe size is reduced, the velocity will increase and act to decrease the static pressure. If the flow area increases through an expansion or diffuser, the velocity will decrease and result in an increase in the static pressure.

## Does flow rate increase with pressure?

Pressure is the cause. Flow rate is the effect. Higher pressure causes increased flow rate. If the flow rate increases, it is caused by increased pressure.

## What is normal flow rate?

Normal flow rate is 1 atmosphere (101.3 kPa) or 14.696 psia at 32 0F (0 0C). Actual flow rate is the actual volume of fluid that passes a given point based on given pressure and temperature of the process.

## How do you calculate water flow in Litres per minute?

The easiest way to get a fairly accurate measure of your water flow rate is to time yourself filling up a bucket. So for example if you fill up a 10 litre bucket in 1.5 minutes, then your flow rate will be: 10/1.5 = 6.66 Litres per minute. Don’t get confused between flow rate and pressure.

## How do you convert pressure to flow?

To find the velocity of the fluid flow, multiply the differential pressure by two and divide this number by the density of the flowing material.

## What is flow rate of a pump?

The flow rate (Q) of a centrifugal pump is the useful volume flow delivered by the pump via its outlet cross-section (see Pump discharge nozzle).

## What is LPM in flow rate?

LPM is an abbreviation of litres per minute (l/min). When used in the context of a particle counter’s flow rate, it is a measurement of the velocity at which air flows into the sample probe. For example, a flow rate of 2.83 LPM means the particle counter will sample 2.83 litres of air per minute.

## How do you calculate flow rate per minute?

To calculate the drops per minute, the drop factor is needed. The formula for calculating the IV flow rate (drip rate) is… total volume (in mL) divided by time (in min), multiplied by the drop factor (in gtts/mL), which equals the IV flow rate in gtts/min.

## What is the drop factor?

Drop factor = the number of drops it takes to make up one ml of fluid. Two common sizes are: 20 drops per ml (typically for clear fluids) 15 drops per ml (typically for thicker substances, such as blood)
