Instantaneous Acceleration

Instantaneous acceleration is the acceleration at a particular moment in time along its path.

Instantaneous Acceleration Formula

\(a_i = \frac { d v_i} {d t }   \)

Where:

\(a_i\) = instantaneous acceleration

\(d\) = displacement

\(v_i\) = instantaneous velocity

\(t\) = time
