What else does acceleration mean?

  • The change in velocity during a time period. Because acceleration is a vector quantity, it is also known as the quantity that has a direction. A = v-ut, where a and v are vectors SI units are used in the following places: A = Acceleration of the Body in Meters Per Second per Second ms-2 or meters per Seq. v is the final velocity of the body measured in meters per second, ms-1 u is the initial velocity of the body measured in meters per second (ms-1). T = Time period in seconds between initial velocity and final velocity. A body that is accelerating can also decelerate, ie. be negative acceleration or at rest. Instantaneous acceleration can also be a little different. (in Community Dictionary, added by Darryl Stein)
  • Acceleration is the process of becoming. (in AZ Dictionary)
  • Temporal change in velocity. (in AZ Dictionary)
