Enter the total time and the change in velocity into the calculator to determine the Time to Acceleration. 

Time to Acceleration Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Time to Acceleration.

A = V / T

  • Where A is the Time to Acceleration (m/s^2)
  • V is the total time (s)
  • T is the change in velocity (m/s)

What are the units for Time to Acceleration?

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

How to Calculate Time to Acceleration?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Time to Acceleration.

First, determine the total time. In this example, the total time is determined to be 10 (s).

Next, determine the change in velocity. For this problem, the change in velocity is measured to be 125 (m/s).

Finally, calculate the Time to Acceleration using the formula above: 

A = V / T

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

A = 125 / 10 = 12.5 (m/s^2)
