Enter the initial acceleration and the average acceleration into the calculator to determine the Final Acceleration. 

Final Acceleration Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Final Acceleration.

Af = 2*AA + Ai

  • Where Af is the Final Acceleration (m/s^2)
  • Ai is the initial acceleration (m/s^2)
  • AA is the average acceleration (m/s^2)

What are the units for Final Acceleration?

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

How to Calculate Final Acceleration?

Example Problem:

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

First, determine the initial acceleration. In this example, the initial acceleration is measured to be 20 (m/s^2).

Next, determine the average acceleration. For this problem, the average acceleration is calculated to be 50 (m/s^2).

Finally, calculate the Final Acceleration using the formula above: 

Af = 2*AA + Ai

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

Af = 2*50 + 20 = 120 (m/s^2)
