Enter the change in velocity and the change in the distance into the calculator to determine the Acceleration From Distance.

## Acceleration From Distance Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Acceleration From Distance.

A = dV^2 / (2*d)

• Where A is the Acceleration From Distance (m/s^2)
• dV is the change in velocity  (m/s)
• d is the change in distance (m)

## What are the units for Acceleration From Distance?

The most common units for Acceleration From Distance are m/s^2.

## How to Calculate Acceleration From Distance?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information required to calculate the Acceleration From Distance.

First, determine the change in velocity . In this example, the change in velocity  is measured to be 50 (m/s).

Next, determine the change in distance. For this problem, the change in distance is calculated to be 100 (m).

Finally, calculate the Acceleration From Distance using the formula above:

A = dV^2 / (2*d)

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation gives us:

A = 50^2 / (2*100) = 12.5 (m/s^2)
