# Vertical Velocity Calculator

Put the required values in the boxes below to find initial vertical velocity or vertical velocity at time using vertical motion calculator.

## Formula

Vertical Velocity at Time:

**V _{y} = V_{y0} - gt**

Initial Vertical Velocity:

**V _{y0} = V_{y} + gt**

Acceleration of Gravity:

**g = V _{y0} - V_{y} /t**

Time:

**t = V _{y0} - V_{y} / g**

**Where,**

V_{y} = Vertical Velocity at Time

V_{y0} = Initial Vertical Velocity

g = Acceleration of Gravity

t = Time.

The vertical component of velocity calculator** **uses above equations to calculate the vertical velocity at time and initial vertical velocity.

Initial vertical velocity calculator** **is an online tool that proficiently finds the vertical velocity of the object in projectile motion. The projectile velocity calculator** **calculates the:

- Vertical velocity at time
- Initial vertical velocity
- Acceleration of gravity, and
- Time

In next sections, we will elaborate vertical velocity definition, vertical velocity equations, and how to find vertical velocity without using vertical acceleration calculator.

## What is projectile motion?

Projectile motion is the motion of a projectile object.

A projectile is an object upon which the only force acting is gravity. There are a variety of examples of projectiles: an object dropped from rest is a projectile provided that the influence of air resistance is negligible.

### What is vertical velocity of projectile motion?

The vertical component of a projectile's velocity is subject to the force of gravity. It accelerates downward resulting in greater distances that are covered in each successive time interval.

## How to calculate vertical velocity at time?

Done exploring horizontal and vertical velocity calculator?** **It’s time to fold up your sleeves, because we are going to explain the manual method to calculate vertical velocity with an example.

**Example:**

Calculate the *vertical velocity at time* for a projectile object with an initial vertical velocity of ** 40 m/s**, having acceleration of gravity of

**in**

*10 m/s*^{2}

*2 s.***Solution:**

**Step 1: **Identify and write down the values.

*V _{y0} = 40 m/s*

*g = 10 m/s ^{2}*

*t = 2 s*

**Step 2: **Use the formula of vertical velocity at time and place the values.

*V _{y} = V_{y0 }– gt*

V_{y} = 40 – 10 × 2

V_{y} = 40 – 20

V_{y} = 20 m/s

*Vertical Velocity at Time (V*_{y}) = 20m/sYou can simply place the values of above example in projectile acceleration calculator** **to directly get the answer.
