# Average Velocity

**Formula:**`v_avg = (v + u) / 2`

## Introduction to Average Velocity Formula

Average velocity is the measure of the displacement of an object over the time taken and is typically represented as ** v_avg**. In the given formula,

**represents the final velocity and**

*v***represents the initial velocity. By taking their average, the formula provides a convenient way to determine how fast an object is moving relative to its starting point, irrespective of the path taken.**

*u*## Parameter usage:

`u`

= initial velocity of the object`v`

= final velocity of the object

## Output:

`v_avg`

= average velocity of the object

## Data validation

The velocities should be numerical values.

## Summary

This formula can be particularly useful in physics and engineering to understand the trend of motion or the average speed of an object.
