Consider x-t plot on last slide: v x ( t 1 ) < v x ( t 2 ) v x is not constant in time v x = v x ( t ) acceleration • acceleration : time rate of change of velocity • average acceleration: • instantaneous acceleration: t v t t v v av x x x x a 1 2 1 2 d dv v x x a lim 2 2 dt x d dt dv a (slope of line tangent to v x ( t ) at time t ) dt t t x 0 In v-t plot above, v x ( t ) is a line constant acceleration i.e.: v x ( t ) = [const] t dv x /dt =
