Acceleration

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

acceleration 8Acceleration, abbreviated as a, is the rate of change of velocity.  Whenever a mass experiences a force, an acceleration is acting.  Acceleration is a vector quantity having magnitude and direction, some of these include displacement, drag, force, lift, momentum, thrust, torque, velocity and weight.

Acceleration formulas

\(\large{ a = \frac{ \Delta v }{ t } }\)    
\(\large{ a = \frac{ v_f \;-\; v_i }{ t } }\)   
\(\large{ a = \frac{ v_f \;-\; v_i }{ t_f \;-\; t_i } }\)   
\(\large{ a = \frac{ F }{ m } }\)  
\(\large{ a = \frac{ F }{ p } }\)  

Where:

\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration

\(\large{ F }\) = force

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ t }\) = time

\(\large{ t_f }\) = final time

\(\large{ t_i }\) = initial time

\(\large{ p }\) = pressure

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity

\(\large{ \Delta v }\) = velocity differential

\(\large{ v_f }\) = final velocity

\(\large{ v_i }\) = initial velocity
