An Introduction to Acceleration: Learning Goal The student will solve example questions related to uniformly accelerated motion. (B2.7, B3.3) The student will solve example questions related to uniformly accelerated motion. (B2.7, B3.3) “It goes from zero to 60 in about 3 seconds.”

An Introduction to Acceleration SPH4C

Acceleration Acceleration is defined as the change in the velocity of an object per interval of time, or:

Acceleration

Acceleration

Acceleration v 2 = final velocity and v 1 = initial velocity

Acceleration Acceleration will have units of m/s/s or m/s 2. (Notice also that acceleration is a vector.)

Example 1 Jake increases his velocity from 13 m/s [E] to 25 m/s [E] in 5.0 s. What is his acceleration?
