Only one thing can be acceleration; the changing velocity of any given object. That's what acceleration is.

Acceleration is caused by a net force on the object.

What is the acceleration of an object that is thrown towards the ground?

The acceleration of an object thrown towards the ground is based on three things on earth- the initial acceleration of the throw, the force of gravity, and the air resistance (drag) of the object. To get the total acceleration, add the initial acceleration and the force of gravity, then subtract the air resistance.

What is positive negative and zero acceleration is?

positive acceleration is when things speed up; negative acceleration is when things slow down; and zero acceleration is when things do not speed up or slow down, this is called constant speed, or no change in velocity.

An object is accelerating when?

Any of these three things means acceleration: -- speed is increasing -- speed is decreasing -- direction of motion is changing, like driving on a curve

There are three thing that must be present for an car to work properly1. compression 2.fuel supply 3.ignition. There are many things that control these three things and all three items can make the car of the era run poorly and sometimes it will not run at all.

What happens to the acceleration if the force applied is increased three times?

Assuming the mass remains constant, the acceleration will be tripled as well.

Acceleration is a?

Yes. A can be a variable representing many things, but it most commonly (especially in grade school physics) is used to represent acceleration.

Explain how force acceleration and mass are related?

These three variables are related by Newton's Second law: Force = mass x acceleration.

The three laws of motion are: The Law of Inertia The Law of Acceleration and The Law of Interaction.

What is the acceleration of an object at rest?

An object at rest doesn't have acceleration unless it has potential energy to be used or a force acts on it. Acceleration is how fast things pick up speed. This also means turns and stops. So there is technically no acceleration of an object at rest.

Does acceleration always mean that things speed up?

No, acceleration is change in velocity. (And velocity is speed in a certain direction.) If an object slows down, then it is changing velocity and thus accelerating. (In this case, the acceleration is negative.) If an object changes direction, then it's velocity changes, so this is also acceleration. (This is centripetal acceleration.)
