it is denoted by


v = u + at

Final Velocity = Initial Velocity + Acceleration *  Time Taken


v = Final Velocity

u = Initial Velocity

t = time taken

a = acceleration


How is this Equation Derived

We know that formula for acceleration is

a = (v - u)/t

at = v - u

at + u = v

v = u + at



Q 3 Page 110 - A trolley, while going down an inclined plane, has an acceleration of 2 cm s-2. What will be its velocity 3 s after the start?
