There are several different equations that can be used to find acceleration.

The right one to choose depends on what information is given or measured.

Examples:

-- You're given the mass of an object and the force acting on it.

Acceleration = (force) divided by (mass)

-- You're given the starting and ending speed of a car, and how much time it was moving.

Average acceleration = (change in speed) divided by (time for the change)

-- An object started out from rest. You're told how far it moved and how long it took.

Average acceleration = (2 x distance) divided by (time squared)

The equation used to find acceleration is what?

Average acceleration = final velocity - initial velocity/ final time - initial timeOr for short:Aave=Vf-Vi/Tf-TiHope that helps :)


How is acceleration related to force?

Force is equal to Mass times Acceleration. So if you are given an equation where you know two of the three variables you can find the third. You can also manipulate the equation as needed.


What equation do you use to find force if you know mass and acceleration?

F = m AMultiply (mass) times (acceleration). The product is (force).


How do you find acceleration from speed?

If speed does not change, then acceleration is 0 To find acceleration, you must also know the time Speed = metres per second. Acceleration = meters per second, per second Therefore you can use the equation m/s2 to find the acceleration. change in speed/ change in time.

What is a correct equation for force?

Write down the equation. force = mass × acceleration.Rearrange the equation. acceleration = force⁄massPut in the values. acceleration = 3,000N⁄ 2,000kgWork out the answer and write it down. acceleration = 1.5m/s2


Which word equation is used to calculate the acceleration of an object?

Acceleration is "force divided by mass" or "change in velocity with respect to change in time".


How do you find acceleration given mass and distance?

Not enough information. One equation you can often use is Newton's Second Law: force = mass x acceleration Which, when solved for acceleration, gives you: acceleration = force / mass
