## Muzzle Velocity Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Muzzle Velocity = Initial Velocity^2+2*Acceleration*Travel Distance Barrel
Vm = u^2+2*a*x
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Muzzle Velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Muzzle Velocity is the speed of a projectile (bullet, pellet) with respect to the muzzle at the moment it leaves the end of a gun's barrel (i.e. the muzzle).
Initial Velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Initial Velocity is the velocity at which motion starts.
Acceleration - (Measured in Meter per Square Second) - Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity to the change in time.
Travel Distance Barrel - (Measured in Meter) - Travel Distance Barrel is the distance traveled inside the gun barrel.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Initial Velocity: 5 Meter per Second --> 5 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Acceleration: 12.56 Meter per Square Second --> 12.56 Meter per Square Second No Conversion Required
Travel Distance Barrel: 200 Millimeter --> 0.2 Meter (Check conversion ​here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Vm = u^2+2*a*x --> 5^2+2*12.56*0.2
Evaluating ... ...
Vm = 30.024
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
30.024 Meter per Second --> No Conversion Required
30.024 Meter per Second <-- Muzzle Velocity
(Calculation completed in 00.020 seconds)

## Muzzle Velocity Formula

Muzzle Velocity = Initial Velocity^2+2*Acceleration*Travel Distance Barrel
Vm = u^2+2*a*x

## What is the Muzzle velocity significance?

Generally a higher muzzle velocity correlates to a flatter trajectory, meaning there is less bullet drop over a given distance when the velocity of a projectile is increased.

## How to Calculate Muzzle Velocity?

Muzzle Velocity calculator uses Muzzle Velocity = Initial Velocity^2+2*Acceleration*Travel Distance Barrel to calculate the Muzzle Velocity, Muzzle Velocity is the speed of a projectile with respect to the muzzle at the moment it leaves the end of a gun's barrel. Muzzle Velocity is denoted by Vm symbol.
