    Re: Acceleration

    What is the relationship between speed and acceleration?
    Hint - look at your equations.


    therefore: a=(s/t)/t = s/t^2

    specifically - acceleration is the second time-derivative of displacement.
    what sort of answer is expected depends on where you are at in your studies.
