How is acceleration measured?
See explanation below
Acceleration is the variation of velocity (speed) per time unit
Speed is measured in meters/second or miles/hour or cm/year. It´s say length/time. Lets say
Then acceleration will be
The value (for example) of gravity acceleration y Earth's surface is
(meters per second squared) or (meters per second per second)
We get this by dividing the difference in speed or velocity of an object by the time it takes to change its speed or velocity...
So if something went from a velocity of
The equation would be:
difference in velocity
The rate of change of velocity per unit of time is called acceleration ..
#a = #acceleration
#v =#final velocity
#u =#initial velocity #t =#time taken
So, by using this method, the acceleration of a body can be measured.
Hope that helped!
