### What is acceleration? Define, Formula

Acceleration in physics is the rate of change of velocity of an object with respect to time. An object’s acceleration is the net result of any and all forces acting on the object, as described by

**Newton’s Second Law**. The SI unit of acceleration is meter per second squared.
Acceleration are vector quantities (they have magnitude and direction) and add according to the parallelogram law. As a vector, the calculated net force is equal to the product of the object’s mass (a scalar quantity) and its acceleration.
