### Acceleration

Acceleration, in physics, is the rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time. An object`s acceleration is the net result of any and all forces acting on the object, as described by Newton`s Second Law. The SI unit for acceleration is the metre per second squared (m/s2). Accelerations are vector quantities (they have magnitude and d.....

### Acceleration

Acceleration is the rate of increase of velocity. Acceleration tells you how much faster or slower a moving object gets every second. A negative acceleration is called a deceleration. The SI Unit of acceleration is the metre per second per second (ms-2)

### acceleration

acceleration, change in the velocity of a body with respect to time. Since velocity is a vector quantity, involving both magnitude and direction, acceleration is also a vector. In order to produce an acceleration, a force must be applied to the body. The magnitude of the force F must be directly pro...

### acceleration

acceleration. When you step on the accelerator in the car or put on the brakes, the car goes faster or slower. When it is changing from one speed to another, it is accelerating (faster) or decelerating (slower). This change from one speed, or velocity, to another is called acceleration. During an earthquake when the ground is shaking.
