Instantaneous Velocity As the time intervals get smaller and smaller in the equation for average velocity, we approach the instantaneous velocity of an object. The formula we arrive at for the velocity of an object with position function x(t) at a particular instant of time t is thus:

Unformatted text preview: v(t) = This is, in fact, the formula for the velocity function in terms of the position function! Unfortunately, it is not feasible, in general, to compute this limit for every single value of t....
