The quantity that describes the rate of change of velocity in a given timeinterval is called acceleration. The magnitude of the average acceleration is calculated by dividing the total change in an object’s velocity by the time interval in which the change occurs.

When the velocity in the positive direction isincreasing, the acceleration is positive, as atpoint A. When the velocity is constant, there is noacceleration, as at point B. When the velocity inthe positive direction is decreasing, theacceleration is negative, as at point C.
The velocity increases by exactly the sameamount during each time interval.Thus, the acceleration is constant. Becausethe velocity increases for each timeinterval, the successive change indisplacement for each time intervalincreases.
*We know that the average velocity is equal todisplacement divided by the time interval.*For an object moving with constantacceleration, the average velocity is equal to theaverage of the initial velocity and the finalvelocity.
We can set the expressions for average velocityequal to each other.Therefore;This is formula of displacement withconstant acceleration.
