# Is friction the rate of change in velocity?

###### Wiki User

Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity. It has nothing to do with friction, unless friction is causing the change.

The rate of change of velocity. (As velocity is the rate of change of position.)

Rate of change of position = velocityRate of change of velocity = accelerationRate of change of acceleration = jerk, jolt, surge, or lurch

The rate of change in velocity is known as acceleration.

The rate of change of velocity is acceleration.

The rate of change of velocity is termed acceleration.

I think you mean the "rate of CHANGE" of velocity. (If you don't, then the question is meaningless.) The rate of change of velocity is called " acceleration ".

Due to friction velocity of a body gets reduced, reduction in velocity causes change in velocity. This change in velocity leads to production of acceleration.(Because only acceleration can produce change in velocity either its direction or its magnitiude). And only a force can cause the acceleration hence friction is a force.

"Acceleration velocity" is a meaningless phrase. "Velocity" is the time rate of change of position. "Acceleration" is the time rate of change of velocity.

Acceleration is the rate and direction of change in velocity. Velocity is the rate and direction of change in position.

No. The rate of change of an object's velocity depends only on the forces acting on it.

Velocity is the time rate of change of displacement or the rate of change of displacement.

Acceleration is re rate of change in velocity. Velocity is any change in speed or direction.

To find rate of change. Two common examples are: rate of change in position = velocity and rate of change of velocity = acceleration.

The rate at which velocity changes is known as the acceleration of an object.Calculating acceleration, given velocity can be achieved with the formula:acceleration = change in velocity / change in time

velocity is the rate of change of displacement with respect to time where as acceleration is the rate of change of velocity with respect o tome.

Velocity is the rate of change of distance with time, acceleration is the rate of change of velocity with time.

The rate of change of velocity, either increasing or decreasing, is its acceleration or deceleration.

Uniform velocity means the velocity is not changing. Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. If velocity isn't changing, the rate of change is zero.

Angular velocity is defined as the rate of change of an angle, while tangential velocity as the rate of change of displacement.

Velocity is the rate of change of position; acceleration is the rate of change of velocity; jerk is the rate of change of accelerationSee related link below for information on "Jerk"

Acceleration and it is defined as the rate of change of velocity with time.

-- 'Velocity' is the rate at which position is changing, and the direction of the change. -- 'Acceleration' is the rate at which velocity is changing, and the direction of the change.
