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 3 Variables
Variables Used
Initial Velocity - Initial Velocity is the velocity at which motion starts. (Measured in Meter per Second)
Acceleration - Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity to the change in time. (Measured in Meter per Square Second)
Travel Distance Barrel - Travel Distance Barrel is the distance traveled inside the gun barrel. (Measured in Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Initial Velocity: 31 Meter per Second --> 31 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Acceleration: 5 Meter per Square Second --> 5 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) --> 31^2+(2*5*0.2)
Evaluating ... ...
Vm = 963
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
963 Meter per Second --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
963 Meter per Second <-- Muzzle Velocity
(Calculation completed in 00.016 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.

How to calculate Muzzle Velocity using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Muzzle Velocity, enter Initial Velocity (u), Acceleration (a) & Travel Distance Barrel (x) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Muzzle Velocity calculation can be explained with given input values -> 963 = 31^2+(2*5*0.2).

FAQ

What is 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 and is represented as Vm = u^2+(2*a*x) or Muzzle Velocity = Initial Velocity^2+(2*Acceleration*Travel Distance Barrel). Initial Velocity is the velocity at which motion starts, Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity to the change in time & Travel Distance Barrel is the distance traveled inside the gun barrel.
How to calculate 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 is calculated using Muzzle Velocity = Initial Velocity^2+(2*Acceleration*Travel Distance Barrel). To calculate Muzzle Velocity, you need Initial Velocity (u), Acceleration (a) & Travel Distance Barrel (x). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Initial Velocity, Acceleration & Travel Distance Barrel and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
