Average rate of change refers to the degree to which a quantity increases or decreases in comparison to changes in another quantity. The generic rate of change formula divides the change in the quantity of interest by th... More » Math Calculus

The formula for acceleration is given as a = (v2 - v1) / (t2 - t1), where "a" denotes the acceleration, "v2" indicates the final velocity, "v1" represents the initial velocity and "t2 - t1" is the time interval between t... More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics

The basic formula for velocity is v = d / t, where v is velocity, d is displacement and t is the change in time. Velocity measures the speed an object is traveling in a given direction. More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics
