• Acceleration is the rate at which velocity changes with time. Acceleration can also refer to the change in speed and/or direction.
• Other ways to measure acceleration ﻿
• See here kids, you can measure speed in a variety of different ways!﻿
• Velocity is any unit of distance divided by any unit of time. Velocity also is meant for a change in direction OR speed. ﻿ Acceleration is a change of velocity.
• ﻿
• .﻿Acceleration is the lowest velocity taken from the highest velocity and then dividing it by time.﻿﻿ ﻿Acceleration can also be m/s - m/s divided by s. Both end up as m/s^2
• ﻿
• Using graphs can help measure acceleration. Speed VS Time and Distance VS Time can both be used to measure acceleration.
• WOW!﻿
