Homework Help: What is transactional acceleration? Conceptual Question

  1. Oct 27, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is transactional acceleration?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have been looking for it all over the internet and I can not find an explanation for it that is easy to understand

    Are you sure it isn't translational acceleration?

    As an example, a falling object has translational acceleration but a spinning object does not.


    I saw a reference the hardware acceleration of transactional memory but Im sure thats not what you're looking for.

    Equilibrium of a Rigid Body

    A rigid body is in equilibrium if it has zero transactional acceleration and zero angular acceleration

    Must be a typo. It should be translational acceleration.
