# How Do You Calculate Acceleration?

## Answer

To calculate acceleration you would take the final velocity minus the initial velocity and divide the elapsed time. Let's say you were driving 55mph and it was 2pm. At 2:01pm, you were going 70 mph. The formula would be 70 - 55 divided by 1/60 of an hour. This formula would be used to calculate the rate of constant acceleration.

Acceleration is the rate at which an object changes its speed or velocity. The formula for finding acceleration is (Vf - Vi)/T, where Vf is the final velocity, Vi is the initial velocity and T is the time elapsed.
