# Acceleration Calculator

The acceleration of a moving object can be determined by using the following formula: where dV is the change of the velocity/speed over time dt which is equal to the difference between the initial speed and the final speed of the object, the dV can be found as shown below:

dV = v1 - v0

where v0 is the initial velocity/speed while v1 is the final velocity/speed of the moving object.
 Initial Speed (v0): foot / hour [ft/hr] foot / minute [ft/min] foot / second [ft/s] furlong / hour furlong / minute furlong / second inch / hour [in/hr] inch / minute [in/min] inch / second [in/s] knot [kn] mach [M] meter / hour [m/h]   centimeter / hour   kilometer / hour meter / minute [m/min]   centimeter / minute   kilometer / minute meter / second [m/s]   centimeter / millisecond [cm/ms]   centimeter / second [cm/s]   meter / millisecond [m/ms]   kilometer / millisecond [km/ms]   kilometer / second [km/s] mile / hour [mph] mile / minute [mpm] mile / second [mps] yard / hour [yd/hr] yard / minute [yd/min] yard / second [yd/s] Final Speed (v1): foot / hour [ft/hr] foot / minute [ft/min] foot / second [ft/s] furlong / hour furlong / minute furlong / second inch / hour [in/hr] inch / minute [in/min] inch / second [in/s] knot [kn] mach [M] meter / hour [m/h]   centimeter / hour   kilometer / hour meter / minute [m/min]   centimeter / minute   kilometer / minute meter / second [m/s]   centimeter / millisecond [cm/ms]   centimeter / second [cm/s]   meter / millisecond [m/ms]   kilometer / millisecond [km/ms]   kilometer / second [km/s] mile / hour [mph] mile / minute [mpm] mile / second [mps] yard / hour [yd/hr] yard / minute [yd/min] yard / second [yd/s] The time (t): century day decade dog watch dog year fortnight helek hour [hr] indiction jiffy jiffy [alternate] jubilee [Biblical] lustrum millennium minute [min] moment month [28 days] month [29 days] month [30 days] month [31 days] Olympiad quarter [90 days] score second [s]   millisecond week year [365 days] year [366 days, leap year] year [tropical year] year [Gregorian] The Acceleration (a): foot / (hour minute) [fph/min] foot / (hour second) [fph/s] foot / (minute second) [fpm/s] foot / square hour [ft/hr2] foot / square minute [ft/min2] foot / square second [ft/s2] gal   milligal   centigal   kilogal galileo [Gal]   milligalileo   centigalileo   kilogalileo gravity [g] g-units [G] inch / (hour minute) [iph/min] inch / (hour second) [iph/s] inch / (minute second) [ipm/s] inch / square hour [in/hr2] inch / square minute [in/min2] inch / square second [in/s2] knot / hour [kn/hr] knot / minute [kn/min] knot / second [kn/s]   knot / millisecond [kn/ms] meter / square hour [m/hr2]   millimeter / square hour   centimeter / square hour   kilometer / square hour meter / square minute [m/min2]   millimeter / square minute   centimeter / square minute   kilometer / square minute meter / square second [m/s2]   millimeter / square second [mm/s2]   centimeter / square second [cm/s2]   kilometer / square second [km/s2] mile / (hour minute) mile / (hour second) mile / (minute second) mile / square hour [mi/hr2] mile / square minute [mi/min2] mile / square second [mi/s2]
