Acceleration FAQs:


Q: Is acceleration the net result of any and all forces acting on the object?

A: Yes, as described by Newton's Second Law.

Q: Is acceleration a type of motion in which the velocity of an object changes by an equal amount in every equal time period?

A: Yes.

Q: Is acceleration the metre per second squared?

A: Yes, or "metre per second per second", as the velocity in metres per second changes by the acceleration value, every second.

Q: Is acceleration that of an object in free fall in a uniform gravitational field?

A: Yes.

Q: Is acceleration produced equal to the rate of change of the angular speed around the circle times the radius of the circle?

A: Yes.

Q: Is acceleration metre per second squared?

A: Yes, Accelerations are vector quantities and add according to the parallelogram law.
