In terms of equations, it works like this: a = ∆v ∆t Given initial and final velocities, vo and vf, and initial and final times over which your speed changed, to and tf, you can also write the equation like this: v -v a = ∆v = t f - t o ∆t f o To get the units of acceleration, you divide speed by time as follows: v -v dis tance/time dis tance = a = tf - t o = time time2 f o Distance over time squared? Don’t let that throw you. You end up with time squared in the denominator just because it’s velocity divided by time — that’s something you get used to when solving physics problems.
