(ak-sel-er-ā'shŭn), Avoid the mispronunciation uh-sel-er-ā'shŭn.

## acceleration

[aksel′ərā′shən]
Etymology: L, accelerare, to quicken
an increase in the speed or velocity of an object or reaction. Compare deceleration. accelerate, v.

## ac·cel·er·a·tion

(ak-selĕr-āshŭn)
The rate of change of velocity.

## acceleration

change in motion of a body or object: the rate of change of velocity with respect to time. linear acceleration: the rate of change in linear velocity with respect to time; related to force by Newton's second law of motion (often stated as force = mass×linear acceleration). Measured in metres per second squared (m.s-2). angular acceleration: the rate of change in angular velocity with respect to time. Measured in degrees per second squared (°. s -2) or radians per second squared (rad.s-2); related to moment by Newton's second angular law of motion (moment = moment of inertia×angular acceleration). tangential acceleration: the acceleration of an object or body acting at a tangent to its direction of motion, e.g. when it is moving in a circle or around a curve. instantaneous acceleration: acceleration measured over a very short (infinitesimal) period of time, effectively a continuous measurement of acceleration. See also gravitational acceleration.
