In one dimensional (straight line) motion, acceleration is accompanied by a change in speed, and the acceleration is always parallel (or antiparallel) to the velocity. When motion can occur in two dimensions (e.g. is confined to a tabletop but can lie anywhere in the x-y plane), the definition of acceleration is in the limit . In picturing this vector derivative you can think of the derivative of a vector as an instantaneous quantity by thinking of the velocity of the tip of the arrow as the vector changes in time. Alternatively, you can (for small ) approximate the acceleration
