Hello there my fellow atomic aficionados.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was simply wondering if I need the mathematical tool of calculus under my metaphorical belt, when calculating the instantaneous speed of an object at a certain point of acceleration?

Thanks in advance for any help you may offer.
