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)

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)
