If you know the initial and final velocity you can determine the acceleration (Velocity final- Velocity initial)/time = acceleration This can also be seen by integrating the acceleration. In this case lets assume acceleration is constant, then: acceleration=C Integration from time=initial to time=final gives C*(time final-time initial)=velocity final-velocity initial This integration scheme can also work if acceleration is not constant. In this case you must know how acceleration or velocity changes with time.

###### Asked in Science, Physics

### How do you calculate initial velocity when given final velocity acceleration and time?

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity per time, so to
get velocity, multiply (acceleration)*(time). This will give the
change in velocity over the specific amount of time. You must add
the initial velocity to get the final velocity, so we have the
formula:
Vf = Vo + a*t, where Vo is the initial velocity. This means that
you can rearrange to get Vo = Vf - a*t

(Vi - Vf)
If they Vi and Vf are already given, you take the two givens and
you subtract them from each other. Vi minus Vf. Do not do Vf minus
Vi or it will be wrong.
After you do that, you divide your answer from T [Time]
(Vi - Vf)
