Acceleration and force

We often measure how things change over time.  When we measure how position changes over time, this is called velocity. If we measure how velocity changes with time, it is called acceleration. Acceleration is present whenever there is a change in velocity.

The slides cover acceleration, and it’s relationship with force through Newton’s first and second laws. Relevant equations are introduced.
