# Average Acceleration Calculator

Calculates the average acceleration for given values of initial, final velocity and time.

## Formula:

Average Acceleration = (Velocity Difference) / (Time Difference)

= (v_{f} - v_{i})/(t_{f} - t_{i})

**where**,

v_{i} = Initial Velocity,

v_{f} = Final Velocity,

t_{i} = Initial Time,

t_{f} = Final Time

### Definition

The acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity per unit time. A we know that velocity is a a vector quantity therefore acceleration is also an vector quantity having both the magnitude and direction. The SI unit of Acceleration is m/s^{2}.

The average acceleration refers to the rate at which the velocity changes. The average acceleration is calculated as shown in formula: (change in velocity) / (elapsed time).
