- Acceleration, in physics, is the rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time. 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. Accelerations are vector quantities and add according to the parallelogram law. As a vector, the calculated net force is equal to the product of the object's mass and the acceleration.
