How to Calculate and Solve for Recoil Velocity | Motion

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.
