The Vertical Velocity equation, `v_y= v_0−g⋅t` , calculates the vertical velocity after some time, t, due to the initial velocity and the force of gravity.

INPUTS

The following are the inputs to this equation:

  • `v_0` - initial velocity of the object
  • t - the time elapsed, and the gravitational constant

Notes

The acceleration due to gravity is assumed to be the gravitational acceleration at sea level
