## Related Questions The rate of change of velocity is termed acceleration.  No, velocity is the instantaneous speed of an object, the rate of change would be the acceleration of the object. Velocity is the rate of change of distance with time, acceleration is the rate of change of velocity with time. An object that has reached its terminal velocity is going at a constant velocity. Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity. The rate of change is zero. Therefore, the acceleration is zero. 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 The acceleration of an object is related to velocity since acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. The change in velocity is just the change in velocity. The RATE of change of velocity - how quickly velocity changes - is usually called "acceleration". That rate at which the velocity of an object changes is known as the acceleration of said object. It can be defined mathematically as a=v/t where a=acceleration, v=the change in velocity, and t=the time in which this change in velocity occurred. The equation is:a = &acirc;&circ;&dagger;v/&acirc;&circ;&dagger;twhere:&acirc;&circ;&dagger;v is the change in velocity&acirc;&circ;&dagger;v is the period of time Because of its velocity (velocity is the rate of change of position), an object will move. An object is stationary if it has no velocity because it will not be able to move without velocity. Therefore, you can tell that an object has moved because of velocity. Velocity is defined as the rate of change of the position of an object in relation to the specification of its speed and direction of motion. Therefore, an object at rest will have zero velocity. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. Constant velocity means zero acceleration. In physics, velocity is the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object. That rate of change, along with the direction in which it's changing, comprise the object's acceleration.  An object accelerates if its velocity changes. More precisely, "acceleration" is the rate of change of velocity (how quickly velocity changes), or in symbols, dv/dt. That's simply called a change in velocity. On the other hand, the rate of change in velocity - how quickly velocity changes - is called acceleration. The definition of rate of rate of change of velocity is Velocity is the rate of change of the position of an object, equivalent to a specification of its speed and direction of motion, e.g. 60 km/h to the north. Velocity is an important concept in kinematics, the branch of classical mechanics which describes the motion of bodies. Speed is the rate of change of distance with time. Velocity is a measure of both speed and direction of a moving object. Velocity is the rate of change of displacement with time. Speed is a distance an object goes, velocity is measurment of speed AND direction. The velocity of an object in uniform circular motion is constant, because, velocity is the rate of change of position at a given time or speed. Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity. (Velocity is speed+direction, it is a vector as well as acceleration). F=ma, where a is in ms^(-2). A change in the position of an object is called a displacement. Velocity is the measure of the rate of change of displacement with respect to time. 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
