After a few coworkers requested my assistance on the matter, I decided to write about "What is 'acceleration'". If you're still with doubts, bear with me…

I will start with a more simple explanation:

1a : the act or process of moving faster or happening more quickly : the act or process of accelerating rapid acceleration the acceleration of economic growth. b : ability to accelerate a car with good acceleration. 2 physics : the rate of change of velocity with respect to time broadly : change of velocity.

A quick answer is…

The rate of change of velocity with respect to time.

**Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.At any point on a trajectory, the magnitude of the acceleration is given by the rate of change of velocity in both magnitude and direction at that point.**

## According to wikipedia…

Wikipedia has defined “acceleration” the following way:

In mechanics, acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity of an object.

Do you know what makes people curious? Here are a few questions and answers:

## 'acceleration'

### What is the unit of acceleration in physics...

Units. Acceleration has the dimensions of velocity (L/T) divided by time, i.e. L T −2. The SI unit of acceleration is the metre per second squared (m s −2); or "metre per second per second", as the velocity in metres per second changes by the acceleration value, every second.
