# The rate of change of velocity is called what?

The rate of which something changes its velocity is the acceleration. A common mistake is to think that something moving fast is accelerating, but it's only accelerating if the velocity of that object is changing.

The [time] rate of change of an object's velocity is called its "acceleration".

Rate of change in position is called velocity.

The rate of change of displacement is called a velocity.

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 ".

The rate of change of velocity is called acceleration or deceleration depending on whether change is negative or positive ie; velocity is increasing or decreasing.

Do you mean, "rate of change of velocity"? That's called "acceleration".

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 increase in velocity is called acceleration and an decrease is called deceleration.

The rate of change of position is the velocity. The velocity at a specific point in time is called the instantaneous velocity.

The rate of change in velocity with respect to time is called, ACCELERATION.

Acceleration means how fast velocity changes. "How fast" means change of velocity per time unit - and this is also called a "rate".Acceleration means how fast velocity changes.

The change in velocity is just the change in velocity. The RATE of change of velocity - how quickly velocity changes - is usually called "acceleration".

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 of velocity over time is called acceleration. It can be as a result of increase or decreased speed, or change of vector.

The rate of change of velocity (dv/dt) is called acceleration.

The rate of change in velocity is known as acceleration.

The rate of change of motion is called jerk, jolt, surge, or lurch. The rate of change is derivative of motion with respect to time, velocity, and/or position.

The rate of change of velocity is acceleration.

The rate of change of velocity is termed acceleration.
