It's equal to the change in velocity (final velocity - initial velocity).

the formula for finding acceleration is final velocity, minus initial velocity, all over time. So if you have the acceleration and initial speed, which is equal to the initial velocity, you must also have time in order to find the final velocity. Once you have the time, you multiply it by the acceleration. That product gives you the difference of the final velocity and initial velocity, so then you just add the initial velocity to the product to find the final velocity.

Acceleration is equal to final velocity minus initial velocity over time. So, it will affect the outcome of the equation depending on what the initial velocity is.

The first answer is backward. Acceleration = (final velocity - initial velocity)/total time. For deceleration the formula is the same, the answer will just be negative.Agreed. In physics, there is no "deceleration", only negative acceleration.a = &Delta;v / &Delta;tThere is no equation for "deceleration" as suggested below.Deceleration=(original velocity-final velocity)/TimeDeceleration In MotionDeceleration = inital speed - final speed / total time taken

If you have constant acceleration, then you can't have constant velocity. (Unless the acceleration is constantly zero.)Final velocity = [initial velocity] + [ (acceleration) x (time) ]

Final velocity = (Initial velocity) + (time)(acceleration)

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.

Velocity final - velocity initial / acceleration X time

There are two methods, it depends on what variables you have: 1. Subtract the initial velocity from the final velocity and divide that whole term by the time (Vf- Vi)/t = a 2. Square both the initial velocity and the final velocity and subtract the squared inital velocity from the squared final velocity and that answer by two times the distance (Vf^2 - Vi^2)/2d = a

A change in velocity can be effected only by acceleration. Therefore, if the acceleration is zero, there is no change, so final velocity equals initial velocity.

Acceleration is an object's change in velocity divided by its change in time. So: acceleration=(final velocity - initial velocity)/(final time - initial time)

Kinematics. Final velocity squared = initial velocity squared + 2(gravitational acceleration)(displacement)

acceleration = (final velocity - initial velocity)/time interval

This can't be done with just final velocity and time. You need to know the acceleration. If you do know the acceleration, multiply it by the time, and subtract that from the final velocity.

force and mass. acceleration=force divided by mass or the time, final velocity, and initial velocity. acceleration= final velocity minus initial velocity diveded by time

The final velocity is (the initial velocity) plus (the acceleration multiplied by the time).

Acceleration = final velocity - initial velocity divided by time

Well, (final velocity) = (initial velocity) + (acceleration x time)

(Final Velocity - Initial Velocity) / Time
