#### Answer:

Compute the acceleration.

#### Explanation:

You can do this by finding the second derivative of the position function, or the first derivative of a velocity function. Finding the derivative will give you the rate of change.

If you do not have a function you can plot the velocity points on a graph and find the slope of the line.
