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 does velocity divided by the time interval equal?

It equals an undefined entity. The average acceleration of an object equals the CHANGE in velocity divided by the time interval. The term "change in velocity" is not the same as the term "velocity", "average velocity", or "instantaneous velocity".

Velocity divided by the time interval equals?

Change in velocity divided by time is acceleration, but velocity divided by time has no particular significance.

Acceleration is defined as the change in?

velocity divided by the time interval

Is Acceleration is the magnitude of average velocity?

No. Acceleration is (change of velocity) divided by (time interval in which it changed). If velocity doesn't change, then there is no acceleration.

What is the relationship between distance and time interval?

V = d / tVelocity is the change in distance over an interval of time.

What is accelaration?

The rate of change of velocity is called accelaration. If u is the intial velocity, v is the final velocity in time interval t then, a=change in velocity/time a=v-u/t

Accelaration is defined as change in velocity divide by what?

Divided by time.Average acceleration is (change in velocity) / (time interval) Instantaneous acceleration is calculated by making the time interval very small. This is written as dv/dt.

When calculating acceleration to find the change in velocity you subtract the what velocity from the final velocity?

You subtract the initial velocity from the final velocity and divide by the time interval.

What is the definition of average velocity?

average velocity means change in displacement and time interval ratio is called as average velocity average velocity what is the velocity at particular instant of time

What are three components needed to find an object acceleration?

Using the definition of acceleration as change of speed / time, you basically need to know: * A time interval during which the object accelerates. * The velocity at the beginning of this time interval. * The velocity at the end of this time interval.

What is acceleration how do you calculates it?

Acceleration is change in velocity.In basic mathematics or physics, it calculated as follows:acceleration = change in velocity/time interval= (final velocity - initial velocity)/time intervalIts standard units are metres per second-squared.In more advanced stages, it is calculated as the derivative of the velocity with respect to time or the second derivative of the position [vector] with respect to time.

What is the formula to find accelerate?

To find acceleration, it is the change in velocity over the change in time. (Vf-Vi)/t. where: Vf is final velocity, Vi is initial velocity, and t is the time interval.

What is Galileo's formula with distance accleraction and time?

distance equals initial velocity times change in time interval plus half of accerlation plus time interval squared

What is the Instantaneous velocity?

Instantaneous velocity is the velocity in difference displacement in shortest time or specific time interval.

If the velocity is zero for a time interval is the accelaration zero at any instant within the time interval?

Yes, but only if the instantaneous velocity remains zero during the time inerval. If you are speaking of average velocity over an interval, all bets are off.

What should you do if you want calculate acceleration of a car?

You should divide the change in velocity of the car by the time interval.

What is instantaneous velocity of a body in terms of its average velocity?

The instantaneous velocity is the limit of the average velocity, as the time interval tends to zero. If you are not familiar with limits, basically you make the time interval very small and calculate the average velocity.

When is the average velocity is equal to the instantaneous velocity?

At a small time interval, the average velocity is approximately equal to the instantaneous velocity. However, the values of the average velocity and the instantaneous velocity approach each other , as the length of the time interval is decreased more and more.

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 velocity divided by the time interval in which the change occured?

It is acceleration. The difference between final velocity and initial velocity, divided by the time is the AVERAGE acceleration. Remember, though that velocity is a vector. So if you are going round in a circle at a constant speed, your direction of motion is changing continuously and so you are always accelerating!

What is instantaneous acceleration'?

It is the acceleration at a particular point in time. It is the slope of the velocity vs time curve at a particular point in time.

What is non-uniform acceleration in physics?

type of motion in which the velocity of an object change in different interval of time

If the velocity of an object changes from 65msto 98ms during a time interval of 12s what is the acceleration of the object?

Average acceleration is a net change in velocity over a corresponding change in time.Your velocity went from 65 to 98 m/s - that's a positive change (gain) of 33 m/s.the time interval was 12 s.+ 33/12 m/s/s = + 2.75 m/s/s.

What is the relationship between average velocity and instantaneous velocity?

The average velocity over an time interval is the average of the instantaneous velocities for all instants over that period. Conversely, as the time interval is reduced, the average velocity comes closer and closer to the instantaneous velocity.
