Acceleration is a vector quantity that measures a change in speed or direction. It is defined as a change in velocity per unit of time. Given below is the acceleration examples problems with solution for your reference to calculate acceleration in m / s^{2}.

Let us consider the acceleration practice problem: A car accelerates uniformly from 22.5 m/s to 46.1 m/s in 2.47 seconds. Determine the acceleration of the car.

We can calculate the Acceleration using the given formula.

Substituting the values in the formula,

Acceleration = (46.1 – 22.5 ) / 2.47
= 23.6 / 2.47
= 9.554 m/s^{2}

Therefore, the value of ** Acceleration is 9.554 m/s ^{2}**.

Refer the below example of acceleration with solution. When an airplane accelerates down a runway at 3.20 m/s^{2} to 5.41 m/s^{2} for 28 s until is finally lifts off the ground, calculate its acceleration before its take off.

**Substituting the values in the above given formula,**

Acceleration = (5.41 – 3.20 ) / 28
= 2.21 / 28
= 0.078 m/s^{2}

Therefore, **Acceleration is 0.078 m/s ^{2}**.
