# What is it called when an object changes velocity?

###### Wiki User

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 velocity of object always changes with wanted or unwanted outer forces.

When velocity changes, that means that the object either moves faster, or moves slower, or moves in a different direction. Any of these changes is called "acceleration".

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

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.

When velocity changes, that means that the object either moves faster, or moves slower, or moves in a different direction. Any of these changes is called "acceleration". A force is necessary to cause it.

An object is accelerating if its speed or direction changes with time. Since speed and direction are the components of velocity, an object is accelerating if its velocity changes with time.

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

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

Wanted and unwanted outer forces will always change the velocity of an object.

Force changes the velocity of an object by acceleration, a=F/m.

Velocity is defined as the rate at which an object changes its velocity; therefore if there is zero velocity then acceleration is neutral as well.

That is called "velocity".That is called "velocity".That is called "velocity".That is called "velocity".

Nope. 'Velocity' IS the speed and direction of motion. If either one changes,that's called 'acceleration'.

An object can only accelerate if its velocity changes.

acceleration is change in velocity.. and velocity constantly changes in circular motion, as the direction constantly changes. This constant change in velocity causes the object to accelerate.

Yes, acceleration is the how the velocity changes. This also includes when an object turns

Having a net force always leads to an acceleration due to Newton's famous law; F = m * a. An acceleration is a change of velocity therefore a net force will always change the velocity of an object.

The velocity changes when an object is acted upon by unequal forces.

Yes you are absolutely right.. the acceleration of an object is how quickly it's velocity changes AND the direction in which it changes.

When velocity changes, that means that the object either moves faster, or moves slower, or moves in a different direction. Any of these changes is called "acceleration". A force is necessary to cause it.
