what is it?
The formula for acceleration is a = (vf - vi) / t, where a is acceleration, vf is final velocity, vi is initial velocity, and t is time.
To calculate acceleration, you need to know the final velocity, initial velocity, and time. Then, plug these values into the formula a = (vf - vi) / t.
The units of acceleration are typically measured in meters per second squared (m/s^2) in the metric system or feet per second squared (ft/s^2) in the imperial system.
Yes, negative acceleration (also known as deceleration) occurs when an object is slowing down. It is represented as a negative value in the formula a = (vf - vi) / t.
Acceleration is directly related to velocity. As acceleration increases, velocity also increases, and as acceleration decreases, velocity also decreases. This is represented in the formula a = (vf - vi) / t, where vf and vi are both components of velocity.
