The image above represents final velocity.

To compute for final velocity, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **initial velocity (u), acceleration (a) **and **time (t).**

The formula for calculating final velocity:

v = u + at

Where;

v = Final Velocity

u = Initial Velocity

a = Acceleration

t = Time

Let’s solve an example;

Find the Final velocity when the initial velocity is 12, acceleration is 9 and the time is 24.

This implies that;

u = Initial Velocity = 12

a = Acceleration = 9

t = Time = 24

v = u + at

v = 12 + (9 x 24)

v = 12 + 216

v = 228

Therefore, the **final velocity **is **228 m/s.**

**Calculating the Initial Velocity when the Final Velocity, the Acceleration and the Time is Given.**

u = v – at

Where;

u = Initial Velocity

v = Final Velocity

a = Acceleration

t = Time

Let’s solve an example;

Find the Initial Velocity when the Final Velocity is 32, the acceleration is 12 and the time is 2.

This implies that;

v = Final Velocity = 32

a = Acceleration = 12

t = Time = 2

u = v – at

u = 32 – (12 x 2)

u = 32 – 24

u = 8

Therefore, the **initial velocity **is **8 m/s.**
