How do you calculate the speed and acceleration of a moving object? This song by The Bonus Point Band makes it easy to remember:
"Speed and Acceleration"
Speed is calculated by dividing the distance by the time.
If you travel 100 meters in four seconds
then your speed is 25 meters per second.
Acceleration can be calculated with a mathematical mind.
Subtract the starting velocity from the final and divide it by the time.
Speed is the rate at which an object moves.
Acceleration is the rate at which velocity changes.
