# How do I find a change of velocity?

Jun 19, 2017

$\Delta v = \overline{a} \times \Delta t$

#### Explanation:

This is the equation for acceleration:
$\overline{a} = \frac{\Delta v}{\Delta t}$

Let's solve for $\Delta v$, which means change in velocity

$\overline{a} = \frac{\Delta v}{\Delta t}$

multiply by $\Delta t$ on both sides

$\Delta v = \overline{a} \times \Delta t$

Now we have the equation to find the change in velocity
