    The change in the velocity is the velocity vector that when it is added to the initial velocity one would get the final velocity. That is the initial velocity vector plus the change in the velocity vector gives one the final velocity vector.

    andrevdh,

    Please do not provide help to posters who do not show any prior working, it is both contrary to the forum guidelines and the ethos of the Science Education forums.
