# How do you find velocity when given mass?

## What is the formula to calculate 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.

## What is velocity by mass?

In terms of an equation, the momentum of an object is equal to the mass of the object times the velocity of the object. Momentum = mass • velocity. In physics, the symbol for the quantity momentum is the lower case p. Thus, the above equation can be rewritten as p = m • v. where m is the mass and v is the velocity.

## What is F MA used for?

Newton’s second law is often stated as F=ma, which means the force (F) acting on an object is equal to the mass (m) of an object times its acceleration (a). This means the more mass an object has, the more force you need to accelerate it. And the greater the force, the greater the object’s acceleration.

## Is velocity related to mass?

The velocity would decrease because mass and velocity are inversely related. The equation for Kinetic Energy is: KE = 1/2 mv2. Kinetic energy has a direct relationship with mass, meaning that as mass increases so does the Kinetic Energy of an object. The same is true of velocity.

## What is formula for mass?

Mass is defined as the amount of matter present in a body. The SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg). The formula of mass can be written as: Mass = Density × Volume. Note: The mass of a body is constant; it doesn’t change at any time.
