ABE 425 Time of Flight Diameter measurement under constant acceleration 4 t 3 t 2 t D D b b 1 t Time (s) Distance (m) ( 29 1 t x ( 29 2 t x ( 29 3 t x ( 29 4 t x p t f t Under the assumption of constant velocity, the time it takes an object to move through the distance b from layer 1 to layer 2 is f t . Therefore the velocity is simply: f b v t = (1) The diameter of the object is represented by the time it takes to move the object through one of the light layers times the velocity of the object or: p p f t D v t b t = ∆ = (2) Assume a contant velocity 0 v : The equation of motion of the particles is now: ( 29 0 0 x t x v t = + (3) Now we can write according to the figure:

This means that the general equation of motion becomes: 4 t 3 t 2 t D D b b 1 t Time (s) Distance (m) ( 29 1 t x ( 29 2 t x ( 29 3 t x ( 29 4 t x p t f t ( 29 2 1 2 x t x v t at = + + (6)...
