== The measurement is made at the point where the ball is when the trigger is squeezed and the contacts close to activate the unit. The gun responds in a "split second" by sending out a pulse, catching the return, and then comparing the two to discover the difference (the Doppler shift). It is so fast that the ball doesn't travel very far in the time it takes the unit to respond and resolve the speed. == It depends upon the radar gun. Some radar guns lock the speed at the instant the operator depresses the trigger. Other radar guns (such as the Bushnell® VelocityTM radar gun) include a feature that locks in the fastest speed that occurred during the entire time the trigger was depressed.

Fomula for velocity?

distance divided by time... For example, if it takes 2 hours to travel 4 miles, your velocity is: 4 miles/2 hours = 2 miles/hour

What is her velocity if it takes her 60 seconds?

Takes her 60 seconds to do what? Travel 1 mile? Travel 10 miles?

How many hours does it take to travel a distance of 96 miles at a velocity of 100 miles per hour?

58 minutes.

How velocity and distance related Are they proportional?

Yes, they are proportional. Distance traveled is the velocity times the time. So if you travel at 60 miles per hour for two hours, you have gone 120 miles.

What is the travel velocity for 19.5 hours of a 890 mile trip?

If, and only if the trip was in a straight line, the velocity is 45.6 miles per hour approx.

How many nautical miles would you travel in 1 hour?

It depends upon your velocity (expressed in knots).

How many hours are in 3194 miles?

the amount of time it takes to travel 3194 miles depends on the speed or velocity and the weight of the object travelling the distance. This is explained in the physics/math equation Distance=(Velocity) x (Time) or when rearranged Time= (Distance)/(Velocity)

What velocity is required to travel 325 miles in 6 hours?

325 miles / 6 hours = 54 1/6 miles per hour (or 54.2 mph)

How long does it take to travel 929 miles?

If you are walking, more than a month. So it depends on your speed/velocity.

How long does it take to travel 112 miles at a velocity of 50 miles per hour?

r ye serious???lol if ur travelling at 50mph then itll take you just over 2 hours to travel 112 miles!!

It took 3.5 hours for a train to travel the distance between two cities at a velocity of 120 miles.?

Thus the distance is 3.5*120 = 420 miles.

How far do I travel if I am driving 65 miles per hour for 180 minutes?

Change the minutes to hours, so the units are common. Velocity = distance / time, so distance = velocity * time = 65 * 3 = 195 miles
