a= ( v - u ) / t
1 of 7
what does v stand for ?
v= final velocity
2 of 7
what does u stand for?
u= initial velocity
3 of 7
So what does ( v - u ) mean?
change in velocity
4 of 7
What is acceleration?
Acceleration is the measure of how much an objects velocity changes with each passing second.
5 of 7
What is the unit of acceleration?
metres per second - squared
6 of 7
What is constant acceleration?
when the same amount of speed is gained or lost by a moving object each second then it is undergoing constant acceleration
