Average Acceleration

Average Acceleration FORMULA

\(\large{ \bar {a} = \frac { \Delta v } { \Delta t }  }\)         

\(\large{ \bar {a} = \frac { v_f - v_i } { t_f - t_i }   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \bar {a} }\) = average acceleration

\(\large{ \Delta t }\) = time differential

\(\large{ t_f }\) = final time

\(\large{ t_i }\) = initial time

\(\large{ \Delta v }\) = velocity differential

\(\large{ v_f }\) = final velocity

\(\large{ v_i }\) = initial velocity
