The image above represents recoil velocity.

To compute for recoil velocity, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **M, V **and **m.**

The formula for calculating recoil velocity:

v = (-(M) x V) / m

Let’s solve an example;

Find the recoil velocity when M is 24, V is 10 and m is 6.

This implies that;

M = 24

V = 10

m = 6

v = (-(24) x 10) / 6

v = (-240) / 6

v = -40

Therefore, the **recoil velocity **is **-40.**
