A change in an objects velocity over time?

A change in an object's velocity over time is known as acceleration.


Change in velocity over time?

change in velocity over time


Which term explains wheather an objects velocity has increased or decreased over time?

Acceleration (a=v/t where a=acceleration, v=velocity and t=time; or Average acceleration= Δv/Δt, where Δv is the change in velocity and Δt is the change in time) shows the rate of change in velocity over time.If Acceleration (a) is positive, it means that velocity has increased over time and if it is negative, it implies the velocity has decreased over time [also commonly known as deceleration(-a)]


What happens to objects when force is exerted on them?

In that case, an object will accelerate - that is, its velocity will change over time.


How is velocity and acceleration the same?

They are not the same. Velocity is the displacement (change in location) over time and acceleration is the change in velocity over time.


What two things do you need to find an objects velocity?

Change in position and change in time velocity= delta displacement/delta time


What is a change in displacement over time?

Velocity is a change in displacement over time.


Which term explains whether an objects velocity has increased or decreased over time?

You're fishing for "acceleration", but your description doesn't support that answer.Acceleration is also present if the direction of motion has changed, even if the speed(the size of velocity) hasn't changed.Acceleration explains the change in an objects velocity over time.


What is the change in velocity by the time interval?

A change in velocity over a time interval is called an acceleration if the velocity is increasing, or a decelleration if the velocity is decreasing.


What is the objects acceleration from 0 to 1 second?

Acceleration is the change in velocity over a time period. Since you need to know the change in velocity to calculate acceleration, the question being asked is not answerable.


How calculate distance if you are given velocity and deceleration?

Velocity is distance over time, and acceleration is change in velocity over time. You can get the time by dividing deceleration by velocity (of course, taking the absolute value). From there, velocity equals distance over time. Distance is velocity * time.


When is velocity contant?

That means that velocity doesn't change over time.


What is the rate of change of motion?

The rate of change of motion is known as acceleration. Acceleration is the change in velocity over change in time. Velocity is the rate of change of position, or change in position over change in time.


How do you calculate accelration?

change in velocity over change in time



Define velocity in terms of displacement?

Velocity is change in displacement over time.


How is position and velocity related?

Velocity is the rate of change of position over time.



Compare and contrast velocity and acceleration?

Velocity and acceleration are both used to describe motion and both are vector quantities. Each one is a measure of change over time. Velocity is equal to the change in position over time, while acceleration is equal to the change in velocity over time. Velocity can be determined by determining the slope of a position-time graph, while acceleration can be found by determining the slope of a velocity-time graph.


What is it called when the rate at which velocity changes over time?

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.


What does slope represnt in a velocity and time graph?

magnitude of acceleration (change in magnitude of velocity over time)


What is distance compared to change of time?

Velocity is distance over time


What acceleration is the rate at which what changes over time?

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity - in symbols, a = dv/dt. Or for average acceleration over a finite time: a(average) = delta v / delta twhere delta v is the change in velocity, and delta t is the time interval.


What is the change in an objects position over time without a direction?

Speed --- actually, if your question is 'position' over time, there is no answer since position is a vector quantity. And position divided by time will still yield a vector quantity-- velocity. If the question asks for change in distance over time, then the answer is speed. --gh ---


Acceleration is the change in distance over time?

The rate of change of velocity per unit of time.
