# Acceleration

**Acceleration**, in physics, is the rate of change of velocity of an object. 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 for acceleration is the metre per second squared (m/s^{2}).

### Converter of Acceleration Unit

**Acceleration** has the dimensions of velocity (L/T) divided by time, i.e., L/T^{2}. The SI unit of acceleration is the metre per second squared (m/s2); this can be called more meaningfully “metre per second per second”, as the velocity in metres per second changes by the acceleration value, every second.

**Units of acceleration**: meter/second^{2} (m/s^{2}), centimeter/second^{2} (cm/s^{2}), inch/second^{2} (in/s^{2}), foot/second^{2} (ft/s^{2}), km/second^{2} (km/s^{2}), yard/second^{2} (yd/s^{2}), mile/second^{2} (mile/s^{2}), galileo (g), Kilometer / hour second, Miles/hour second, Gravity.
