The slope of a velocity-time graph that shows uniform acceleration is the actual acceleration. Instantaneous velocity is the velocity of a body at a particular moment in time.

What is the difference between uniform and variable velocity?

Uniform velocity is velocity unaffected by acceleration. Variable velocity is velocity affected by acceleration. Lauren "Physics above all!"


What is the physics definition for acceleration?

Acceleration is a change in velocity over a period of time.


How can you accelerate by decreaing speed?

In physics, "acceleration" means change of velocity.


What does it mean when velocity changes?

It means that after a while, the velocity is not the same as what it was previously. In physics, the rate of change of velocity is called acceleration.


What is Resulting acceleration formula?

Acceleration in physics is the change in velocity in change in time. Resulting acceleration comes from applying force to a body. The equation is velocity final minus velocity initial divided by change in time.


Why slowing down of an object is considered to be form of acceleration?

Acceleration - as defined in physics - means "change of velocity".


Is velocity under physics?

yes it is part of physics and if i rember right it shows and objects acceleration but i am not sure, my physics teacher was horrible


What is the formula for calculating decceleration?

In physics, there is no "deceleration. " Using the formula for acceleration ((final velocity - initial velocity)/total time) backwards, you can solve for negative acceleration.


How does acceleration convert to speed?

In physics, the definition of acceleration is that it is the ratio of change of velocity with time and given as acceleration or 'a' is equal to 'dv/dt'. The term dv/dt represents the derivative of velocity with respect to time.


What are ways your velocity can change?

Any acceleration.Acceleration in physics is classed as loss or gain or speed, or any change in direction.


What do you called the negative acceleration?

That is sometimes called deceleration. In physics, however, any change of velocity is simply called "acceleration".


How can a car slowing down also be accelerating?

In physics, "acceleration" means there is a change of velocity.


How do you find overall velocity?

There is average velocity, and there is instantaneous velocity. I don't think "overall velocity" is a concept generally used in physics; please clarify what you mean.


How does acceleration change with time?

acceleration is velocity divided by time.so increasing or decreasing the velocity would change the time....(velocity=speed)A2. But there is a name for the change of acceleration, it is Jerk. (as in a stockwhip for example) [This property has some other similar names, but i was trained in the US system of physics.]


What is uniform acceleration in physics?

Uniform, or constant, acceleration is a type of motion in which the velocity of an object changes equal amounts in equal time periods.


Does acceleration always mean that an object is speeding up?

No. As used in physics, the word "acceleration" means that THE VELOCITY CHANGES. More precisely, it refers to how quickly the velocity changes, in symbols, dv/dt.


What is the formula for deceleration in physics?

There is no formula for deceleration is physics so you can use the same formula for acceleration - use the answer in the negative. To calculate the acceleration, use a = (u - v) / t, where a is acceleration measured in m/s^2, u is the initial (starting) velocity, v is the final velocity, and t is time measured in seconds.


Is speed the change in velocity?

No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).No; the change in velocity over time is called acceleration.Speed and velocity are used interchangeably in popular language; in physics, the word "speed" is used for a scalar (that is, when the direction is irrelevant), and "velocity" is used for a vector (that is, when you need both a magnitude and a direction).


What is the importance of studying speed and velocity?

These concepts appear all over the place, in physics.


Is Acceleration is a rate that can describe how speed or direction is changing?

Acceleration is a change in velocity. Velocity is defined as the speed of an object in a specific direction. It is a vector quantity. Thus acceleration could be a rate of change of speed, velocity or both. In addition, acceration can be negative. In physics terms, there is no such thing as "Deceleration". Any change is considered to be acceleration.


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.


Why is the slope of velocity graph the acceleration of gravity?

The slope of a straight line tells the rate at which your variables are changing. In this case, it tells you how your velocity is changing over time, which in physics is how we define acceleration. If you graph the velocity of an object vs time when it is falling through the air, it gives to the acceleration due to gravity because that is the acceleration all objects fall at.


Accleration of an object?

Acceleration, in physics, is the rate of change of velocity of an object. It is also written as a = F/m, where F is the net force applied to a mass, m.


Do skateboarders actually defy the laws of physics?

Absolutely not. Given the mass of the boarder, their velocity and the acceleration of gravity, you can predict all movements of a skateboarder with Newtonian physics.
