I am trying to calculate the instantaneous speed of a car in a video

timer Asked: Nov 27th, 2014

Question description


I am a researcher looking into the assassination of JFK and I have a little seen video of the moment from the opposite side of the street.  For decades it was claimed by witnesses that the limo either stopped or almost stopped, and now that can be clearly seen.  I need help from someone skilled in differential calculus who can tell me the speed of the limo at the moment of the head shot, which is visible in the video.

I am hoping that someone can assist in solving a 51 year old mystery.  How fast was the limo going at the time of the shooting?

I can tell you that the limo was 255 inches long (6.477m), and I may be able to provide additional details for you if necessary.
