###### Asked in Physics

### Does time equals velocity over acceleration?

Yes, sort of. At least, that's the units used. The actual
definition of acceleration is:
a = dv/dt
In other words, the rate at which velocity changes. In the case
of constant acceleration, that would be equal to a change in
velocity, divided by the time interval during which this change
takes place. In the case of non-constant acceleration, the
acceleration, or rate of change of velocity, can of course change
from one moment to another.

### If the velocity of an object changes from 65msto 98ms during a time interval of 12s what is the acceleration of the object?

Average acceleration is a net change in velocity over a
corresponding change in time.
Your velocity went from 65 to 98 m/s - that's a positive change
(gain) of 33 m/s.
the time interval was 12 s.
+ 33/12 m/s/s = + 2.75 m/s/s.

###### Asked in Mechanics

### If the speed of an object changes from 121ms to 98ms during a time interval of 12 s what is the acceleration of the object?

We have this equation:
Velocity after = Initial velocity + (acceleration * time)
So, let's plug in the numbers into this equation.
98m/s = 121m/s + (acceleration * 12seconds)
So,
-23 = 12 seconds * acceleration
dividing 12 from both sides, the acc. is -1.92m/s/s. (Yes, those
are the UNITs of acceleration. And it's negative because the object
slows down. )

### If the speed of an object changes from 121 meters per second to 98 meters per second during a time interval of 12 seconds what is the acceleration of the object?

Acceleration = change in velocity/time
a = (v - u) /t
where a= acceleration, v= velocity, u= initial velocity & t=
time.
u = 121 m/s
v = 98 m/s
t = 12 m/s
a = (98 - 121) /12

###### Asked in Physics

### What id an instantaneous accelaration mean?

Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity.
If the rate of acceleration is constant then it can be
calculated as the change in velocity divided by the time over which
the change takes place. However, if the acceleration is
continuously changing - in circular motion at uniform speed, for
example - then the acceleration has to be calculated as the change
in velocity between two moments in time which are very very close
together divided by the very very small difference...

### How to find acceleration?

Acceleration has two parts ... its size and its direction.
To find the size (magnitude):
-- pick a time interval
-- measure the speed at the beginning of the interval
-- measure the speed at the end of the interval
-- subtract the speed at the beginning from the speed at the
end
-- divide that difference by the length of the time interval
-- the result is the magnitude of acceleration during that time
interval

### What is the definition of non uniform motion in physics?

During uniform motion, velocity is constant, so there is zero
acceleration. Non-uniform motion involves a change in velocity,
which means there is acceleration. Accelaration is a change in
velocity. A change in velocity occurs when a body slows down,
speeds up, or turns (changes direction), or a combination of
these.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Physics

### Acceleration is an increase of speed during a given interval of time?

No. It is the change in velocity (not speed) during a
given interval of time. It can be an increase or a decrease
although a decrease is also called a deceleration.
The distinction between velocity and speed can best be
illustrated by an object going round in a circle at a constant
speed. It is changing direction all the time so that its velocity
is constantly changing. It is constantly accelerating even though
it is travelling at constant speed.
