## What is acceleration?

Acceleration is the rate at which an object's velocity changes over time. In other words, it measures how quickly an object's speed increases or decreases, or how rapidly it changes direction.

Acceleration is a vector quantity, which means that it has both magnitude (the amount of acceleration) and direction (the direction of the change in velocity). The standard unit of acceleration is meters per second squared (m/s²).

For example, if a car is initially traveling at 30 meters per second and then increases its speed to 40 meters per second over a period of 5 seconds, its acceleration would be:

Acceleration = (Final velocity - Initial velocity) / Time
Acceleration = (40 m/s - 30 m/s) / 5 s
Acceleration = 2 m/s²

This means that the car's speed increased by 2 meters per second every second during the 5-second interval.
