Exception: motion with constant velocity. 16 1. 2 Instantaneous velocity 1. Deﬁnition of instantaneous velocity Instantaneous velocity, limit of the mean velocity for time intervals approaching zero. LT−1 instantaneous velocity vx (t) = lim t→0 x d dx(t) = x(t) = = x(t) ˙ t dt dt Symbol Unit Quantity vx (t) m/s x(t) m t x s m instantaneous velocity position at time t time interval path element The function x(t) represents the position coordinate x of the point at any time t. In the position-time graph, the instantaneous velocity vx (t) is the slope of the tangent of x(t) at the point t (Fig.

20). The following cases are to be distinguished: ax > 0: ax = 0: ax < 0: vx > 0 and hence vx2 > vx1 . , in the v vs. t graph the curve is rising. vx = 0 and hence vx2 = vx1 . The body does not change its velocity (possibly only brieﬂy). vx < 0 and hence vx2 < vx1 . For vx1 > 0 the body moves with decreasing velocity. 20: Graphs for position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time. Starting from the origin, the body is ﬁrst uniformly accelerated, then moves with constant velocity, and thereafter is uniformly decelerated to rest.
