Enter the initial acceleration, final acceleration, into the calculator to determine the Final Acceleration. 

Final Acceleration Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Final Acceleration.

A = (Ai + Af) / 2
  • Where A is the Final Acceleration  (m/s^2)
  • Ai is the initial acceleration  (m/s^2)
  • Af is the final acceleration  (m/s^2)

To calculate the average acceleration, sum the initial and final acceleration, then divide by 2.

What are the units for Final Acceleration?

In the International System of Units, also known as SI units, the units for Final Acceleration are m/s^2.

How to Calculate Final Acceleration?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Final Acceleration .

First, determine the initial acceleration. In this example, the initial acceleration  is calculated or measured to be 50 (m/s^2).

Next, determine the final acceleration. For this problem, the final acceleration  is determined to be 40 (m/s^2).

Finally, calculate the Final Acceleration using the formula above: 

A = (Ai + Af) / 2

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

A = (50 + 40) / 2 = 45 (m/s^2)
