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
