The rate of change in velocity, abbreviated as \(v_c\), is the first derivative of velocity, the second derivative of position or the instantaneous change in velocity.  In physics, it is known as acceleration. 


Rate of Change in Velocity formula

\(\large{ v_c = \frac {s}{t} }\)     (Rate of Change in Velocity)

\(\large{ s =  v_c  \;  t  }\)

\(\large{ t = \frac {s}{v_c }  }\)

Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ v_c }\) = rate of change in velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec^2}}\)  \(\large{\frac{m}{s^2}}\) 
\(\large{ s }\) = displacement \(\large{ ft }\) \(\large{ m }\)
\(\large{ t }\) = time taken tor change in velocity \(\large{ sec }\) \(\large{ s }\)
