Linear velocity

Rate at which a body moves in a straight line from one location to another. Average linear velocity = displacement/time taken. The linear velocity of a point on a turning body, such as a lever, is directly proportional to its distance from the axis. Therefore, the maximum linear velocity of a moving lever (such as a limb) occurs at its distal end, and the longer the radius of the lever, the greater its linear velocity.
