## 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)

To calculate the acceleration from distance, square the change in velocity, then divide by 2 times the distance.

## 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)
