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.
