## What are objects that accelerate?

An object which experiences either a change in the magnitude or the direction of the velocity vector can be said to be accelerating. This explains why an object moving in a circle at constant speed can be said to accelerate – the direction of the velocity changes.

**What is an example of acceleration in physics?**

When you fall off a bridge. The car turning at the corner is an example of acceleration because the direction is changing. The quicker the turns, the greater the acceleration.

**What are 3 ways something can accelerate?**

There are three ways an object can accelerate: a change in velocity, a change in direction, or a change in both velocity and direction.

### What are ways the 3 ways objects can accelerate?

An object accelerates when its velocity changes as a result of increasing speed, decreasing speed, or a change in direction.

**What two things can change when an object accelerates?**

Acceleration can increase the velocity of the object, decrease the velocity of the object, or change the direction of the velocity of the object.

**How do you find acceleration?**

Acceleration (a) is the change in velocity (Δv) over the change in time (Δt), represented by the equation a = Δv/Δt. This allows you to measure how fast velocity changes in meters per second squared (m/s^2). Acceleration is also a vector quantity, so it includes both magnitude and direction.

## What two things will cause an object to accelerate?

The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables – the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object. The acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object.
