### Acceleration (Notes)

Acceleration (Notes) Acceleration the change in velocity per unit of time; it is a vector quantity and must have a direction; symbol is a; SI unit is m/s/s or m/s 2.

### Acceleration

Acceleration Introduction: Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity with respect to time, thus the concepts of velocity also apply to acceleration.

### Acceleration Lab Teacher's Guide

Acceleration Lab Teacher's Guide Objectives: 1. Use graphs of distance vs. time and velocity vs. time to find acceleration of a toy car. 2. Observe the relationship between the angle of an inclined plane and the acceleration of a toy car on the inclined plane.
