it will be on the note, and you'll see something that says ARM Rider.
If you dont have the papers handy, then you can view it on the county records.

If you got a good starting rate, and it was a 5/1 ARM, then more than likely it was a LIBOR rate.

I would speak to your mortgage lender, and try to refinance before your home value drops.
Then it wont be pretty..
