Enter the change in speed and the change in time into the calculator to determine the Acceleration from Speed. 

Acceleration from Speed Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Acceleration from Speed.

A = dS / dT

  • Where m/s^2 is the Acceleration from Speed (m/s^2)
  • dS is the change in speed (m/s)
  • dT is the change in time (s)

What are the units for Acceleration from Speed?

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

How to Calculate Acceleration from Speed?

Example Problem:

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

First, determine the change in speed. In this example, the change in speed is measured to be 35 (m/s).

Next, determine the change in time. For this problem, the change in time is calculated to be 5 (s).

Finally, calculate the Acceleration from Speed using the formula above: 

A = dS / dT

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

A = 35 / 5 = 7 (m/s^2)
