Position is the place where an object is located. Speed is the rate at which position changes. Velocity is the speed and direction of motion. Acceleration is the rate at which velocity changes, and the direction of the change. So you could say that acceleration is the rate at which (the rate at which position changes and the direction) changes, and the direction of the change.

The change in an objects position is called motion. The rate of change is the speed.

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.

Acceleration is the rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time.

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.

No, velocity is the instantaneous speed of an object, the rate of change would be the acceleration of the object.

Rate of change in position is called velocity.

'Velocity' means the rate at which position changes, and the direction in which it changes. 'Acceleration' means the rate at which velocity changes, and the direction in which it changes.

No. It's the rate at which a object changes velocity (speed).

In physics, velocity is the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object. Displacement of air is what it is called.

"Rate of change" means how quickly something changes. Examples in physics include a speed as a rate of change of position - if your position changes 10 meters every second, then that (10 meters/second) is your rate of change of position, or your velocity. Or if your income increases by a thousand dollars a year, then that's the rate of change of your income - how quickly your income changes.

accelerationThe rate at which velocity changes is called "acceleration".

The rate at which velocity changes in time is called acceleration.

Velocity is speed with a direction. Acceleration is the rate at which velocity changes, just as velocity is the rate at which position changes (and jerk is the rate at which acceleration changes).

During constant acceleration, either the object's speed changes at a constant rate, or the direction of its motion changes at a constant rate, or both.

Velocity if the rate of change in an objects position. If an object moves up or down, its velocity changes. So velocity happens in both directions.

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.

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.
