An object moves in a positive direction, and speeds up. Remember, in physics problems, you declare which direction is positive, just to make problems easier.

How does positive acceleration and negative acceleration affect motion?

positive acceleration helps to increase the velocity for positive direction while negative acceleration resists the motion.

What is negative and positive acceleration?

Positive acceleration = speeding up. Negative acceleration = slowing down.

What are examples of positive acceleration?

Can there be a positive acceleration and a negative acceleration?

Yes, acceleration can be positive and negative because acceleration is a vector. It has both direction and magnitude. The direction is what makes it positive or negative. Negative acceleration is usually called deceleration.

What has to happen to a car's acceleration and velocity for a car's speed to increase and have a positive acceleration?

The velocity has to increase in a positive direction. The increase in velocity in a positive direction is a positive acceleration.

When does an object have a positive acceleration?

Positive acceleration is an increased speed, i.e. acceleration acts in the same direction that the object is moving.

What are examples of acceleration?

Examples of acceleration are change in speed, change in direction, or both.

Problems about positive acceleration?

Positive acceleration is an increase in velocity in the direction in which motion is being measured.

What can positive acceleration called?

Positive acceleration could be called "speeding up" if you felt like it.

When An object speeds up it has what acceleration?

Positive acceleration

How is a negative acceleration different from a positive acceleration?

Actually, it depends on how you define the coordinate axes, but usually when moving forward, negative acceleration decreasesspeed, positive acceleration increasesit.

Can a body have negative velocity and positive acceleration?

no a body can only have positive velocity .sometimes it have negative acceleration

If objects get faster with time the direction of the acceleration is?

The acceleration is positive.

What is positive acceleration?

Positive Acceleration refers to the force acting on an object whose speed increases as it moves away from its original starting position. If the velocity is increasing along with time it is called positive acceleration, and if the velocity decreases it is negative acceleration.

Difference between negative and positive acceration?

Positive acceleration ==> speeding up Negative acceleration ==> slowing down

Does acceleration have a negative or positive value if the velocity is increasing speed?

In this case, acceleration is positive. Negative acceleration would cause the object to slow down (decelerate.)

Can the velocity of an object be positive and acceleration negative?

Yes. An object slowing down but still moving in a positive direction has a positive velocity but a negative acceleration.

Examples of acceleration?

acceleration, deceleration Acceleration is a measure of the change in velocity over time.
