Trivia: "Ur language" could also refer to Ur, a research programming language.

comment Word for change in velocity
(-1) No, this is incorrect. The problem is not regarding direction, rather it is regarding the time aspect. The question was asking about change, not rate of change.

comment Word for change in velocity
(-1) No, this is incorrect. Acceleration is defined as the derivative of velocity with respect to time; I am asking about just the change in velocity. See also the comments on the original question.

comment Is “the girls are want to gossip” correct?
@Markus As a native speaker, I'd say that this makes complete sense but seems extremely old-fashioned.

comment Word for change in velocity
@MT_Head That's precisely what I wanted actually- acceleration integrated over time. When I said I wanted "acceleration*time" that means "acceleration integrated over time" in the simple case of constant acceleration. "Acceleration integrated over time" simply refers to the more general case.

comment Word for change in velocity
@Kris △v is not a word, and thus isn't really what I was looking for. However, this is the first answer which fits the definition; it does mean "but not over time". Furthermore, I think it highly unlikely that there is a single word which fits the definition. Thus, although this is not an English word as such, this will be the accepted answer unless in the rare possibility that an actual word comes along which fits the definition.

@MT_Head Acceleration doesn't fit because acceleration = change-in-velocity/time. I'm basically looking for a word for acceleration*time.

That only really works for lack of change in velocity, not change in velocity.

comment Compressed vs. zipped
@JohnY Nevertheless, compressing a file with the RAR file format does not make it a "zipped" file just because you used "7-Zip".
