Retardation is the application of a force that produces negative accelleration. Synonyms would be braking, decelleration, damping, etc. Gravitational force operates downward (in a negative direction) so, in most frames of reference, gravity is a retarding force.

Retardation means deceleration or the negativity to speed. It's synonyms Disintegrate, Prejudice, Destruct etc. The formula of retardation is V - U/ T where V is the final position U is the initial motion and T is the time taken by object.

Profound retardation is the most severe mental retardation.

Pseudo-retardation would be something that resembles or looks like retardation, but actually isn't. The term literally means, fake retardation.

Retardation or deceleration is negative accelaration formula for finding retardation is same as that of accelaration: v-u/t, where v is the final velocity, u is the initial velocity and t is the time taken. eg- a bus is travelling at 20 m/s. Brakes are applied to stop the bus. The total time taken by the bus to stop is 2 s. Find its retardation. ans- v=0; u=20; t=2 accelaration= 0-20/2 a= -10 m's^2 retardation= 10 m/s^2 (because retardation is negative accelaration)

Retardation is holding something back. In a way, applying the brakes in a car is retardation.

what are the complications of mental retardation?

physically retardation means negative acceleration

unit and definition of retardation

Retardation = change in vel / time taken

Profound mental retardation: Below 20 Severe mental retardation: 20-34 Moderate mental retardation: 35-49 Mild mental retardation: 59-60 Borderline intellectual functioning: 70-79

no. dyslexia is not the same as mental retardation.

No. Mental Retardation comes from genetics. Genetics can not be altered.

When a balloon ascends, it undergoes acceleration. This is in spite of the forces like gravity that acts on it. The acceleration of the balloon can be calculated using Newton's second law of physics.

Overstudy does not cause mental retardation.

The first spelling is correct: "Retardation."

Retardation - 2015 was released on: USA: 2015

Endothelin-2 deficiency causes growth retardation in mice.

acceration means rate of change of velocity and if that acceration is negative then it is called as retardation

literature review on mental retardation with reference

Exposure to lead can also cause mental retardation.

Lennie Small did represent a character with mental retardation.

Their retardation is often caused by an accompanying neurological disorder.

Retardation or deceleration is negative acceleration. It is opposite to the direction of velocity.

Mental retardation is more commonly called down syndrome or being known as mentally handicapped. It is offensive to say mental retardation or retard.
