What do you mean by acceleration?

When an object is moving then it is in motion state. The change in motion is called its velocity and change is velocity is called acceleration. Here we are discussing about the term acceleration.


It is defined as the change in velocity with time. So we can say that if an object has changed its velocity then it is accelerating state. It depends on how fast an object gets speed. It is a vector quantity which is change with time. There must be change in velocity. If there is no change in velocity for some particular time period then the acceleration remains constant. There is 10 m/s change in velocity in each consecutive second then it is called constant acceleration.


Its various types are uniform or constant, negative, and Instantaneous, angular, tangential, centrifugal and centripetal acceleration. Here we are discussing about the different types of acceleration and its graph representation which shows that how its change with velocity and time, formula of acceleration by Newton’s law of motion, and its derivative, and units.
