"Acceleration" in context

Acceleration is the rate at which velocity or speed of an object changes over a period of time. It is a vector quantity which means it has both magnitude and direction. It is the rate of change of velocity with respect to time. Units of acceleration are meters per second squared (m/s²). In physics, acceleration can be defined as the rate of change in velocity over time.

For example, if a car is accelerating from rest, the speed at any given time increases as the time passes. Therefore, acceleration is the rate at which the speed of an object increases or decreases over time.
