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.
