The average acceleration is a vector quantity (magnitude and direction) that describes the rate of

change (with the time) of the velocity of a moving object.

An object with initial velocity v0 at time t0 and final velocity v at time t has an average acceleration

between t0 and t given by

average acceleration =

v - v0

t - t0

or

average acceleration =

change in velocity

change in time

?v

?t

Example 1: What is the acceleration of an object that moves with uniform velocity?

Solution:

If the velocity is uniform, let us say V, then the initial and final velocities are both equal to V and the

definition of the acceleration gives

average acceleration =

V-V

t - t0

=0

Example 2: A car accelerates from rest to a speed of 36 km/h in 20 seconds. What is the acceleration

of the car in m/s2?

Solution:

The initial velocity is 0 (from rest) and the final velocity is 36 km/h. Hence

average acceleration =

36 km/h - 0

20 seconds

36 km/h

20 seconds

Hence

average acceleration =

10 m/s

20 seconds

= 0.5 m/s2

Example 3: A car slows down from a speed of 72 km/h to rest in 25 seconds. What is the acceleration

of the car in m/s2?

Solution:

The initial velocity is 72 km/h and the final velocity is 0 (rest). Hence

average acceleration =

0-72 km/h

25 seconds

-72 km/h

25 seconds

Hence

average acceleration =

- 20 m/s

25 seconds

= -0.8 m/s2

Example 4: A plane has a take off speed of 300 km/h. What is the acceleration in m/s2 of the plane if

the plane started from rest and took 45 seconds to take off?

Solution:

The initial velocity is 0 (from rest) and the final velocity is 300 km/h (take off). Hence

average acceleration =

300 km/h - 0

45 seconds

300 km/h

45 seconds

Hence

average acceleration =

83.3 m/s

45 seconds

= 1.85 m/s2

Example 5: What acceleration is needed to accelerate a car from 36 km/h to 72 km/h in 25 seconds?

Solution:

The initial velocity is 36 km/h and the final velocity is 72 km/h, hence

average acceleration =

72 km/h - 36 km/h

25 seconds

36 km/h

25 seconds

average acceleration =

10 m/s

25 seconds

= 0.4 m/s2

Example 6:Starting with a constant velocity of 50 km/h, a car accelerates for 32 seconds at an

acceleration of 0.5 m/s2 . What is the velocity of the car at the end of the period of 32 seconds of

acceleration?

Solution:

50 km/h is the initial velocity; we are given the acceleration and we asked to find the final velocity.

V - 50 km/h

32 second

Example 7: How long does it take to accelerate a car from a speed of 50 km/h to a speed of 100 km/h

at an acceleration of 1 m/s2?

Solution:

The initial velocity is 50 km/h and the final velocity is 100 km/h and we are given the acceleration

t

The above equation gives the equation

1 m/s2 * t = 50 km/h
