Average Acceleration Calculator


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

Initial Velocity:m/s
Final Velocity:m/s
Initial Time:sec
Final Time:sec

 

   

 

Average Acceleration : m/s2

Formula:

Average Acceleration = (Velocity Difference) / (Time Difference)
= (vf - vi)/(tf - ti)

where,

vi = Initial Velocity,

vf = Final Velocity,

ti = Initial Time,

tf = 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/s2.

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).
