## Change in Velocity Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Change in Velocity.

**Δ**V = a * **Δ**T

- Where
**Δ**V is the change in velocity (m/s) - a is the acceleration (m/s^2)
**Δ**T is the change in time (s)

To calculate the change in velocity, multiply the change in time by the acceleration.

## What is a Change in Velocity?

Definition:

A change in velocity measures the total change in the magnitude of a velocity due to an acceleration.

## How to Calculate Change in Velocity?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Change in Velocity.

First, determine the acceleration. In this example, the acceleration is found to be 150 m/s^2.

Next, determine the change in time. For this problem, the time is found to be 10 s.

Finally, calculate the Change in Velocity using the formula above:

**Δ**V = a * **Δ**T

**Δ**V = 150*10

**Δ**V = 1,500 m/s
