# What is the dimensional formula of acceleration?

Acceleration is the change in velocity with respect to time, which can be represented as dv/dt. The factor d/dt represents the rate of change of something.

Velocity is given by the formula

V = s/t

here, s is the displacement in meters and t is the time in seconds.

Hence, the dimensional formula of velocity can be represented as

LT–1

To calculate acceleration, we will have to divide the change in velocity by a time interval. Hence,

a = v/t

Therefore, the dimensional formula can be represented as

LT–1/T = LT-2

The dimensional formula of acceleration is LT-2.
