Acceleration is motion at a velocity that is in a consistent state of change, right? So...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

v is in terms of m/s

a is in terms of m/s^2

So what is motion at an acceleration that is in a consistent change?

a^2 is in terms of m/s^3

or

a^2 is in terms of m/s^4

?

Is this 'acceleration of acceleration' ever used? Howabout acceleration of acceleration of acceleration, etc etc ad infinitum?
