 quantitykind:Acceleration

Type
Description

Acceleration is the (instantaneous) rate of change of velocity. Acceleration may be either linear acceleration, or angular acceleration. It is a vector quantity with dimension $$length/time^{2}$$ for linear acceleration, or in the case of angular acceleration, with dimension $$angle/time^{2}$$. In SI units, linear acceleration is measured in $$meters/second^{2}$$ ($$m \cdot s^{-2}$$) and angular acceleration is measured in $$radians/second^{2}$$. In physics, any increase or decrease in speed is referred to as acceleration and similarly, motion in a circle at constant speed is also an acceleration, since the direction component of the velocity is changing.
