Can negative acceleration(retardation) also mean that a body is speeding up or is it always slowing down of a body?

Negative acceleration always indicates that the acceleration is in the direction opposite to that of the motion of the body. Hence, negative acceleration (or retardation) always means that the body is slowing down.

- A particle travels in a straight line, such that for a short time 2s≤t≤6s, its motion is described by v=(4/a) m/s, where a is in m/s 2 . If v =8m/s when t = 2s, determine the particle's acceleration when t = 4s.
- please solutions
- Distance covered by a train is 72 km with initial velocity of 20 m/s in 30 minutes. Find it's acceleration
- Derive an expression for average acceleration and instantaneous accelerationfor the motion of an object in x-y plane
- Velocity as a function of position for a particle is given as v = √x (ii) Find acceleration as function of time.
- Formula to find distance travelled by an uniformly accelerated body is
- The distance x covered by a body moving in a straight line in time t is given by the relation- 2x²+3x=t If v is the velocity of body at a certain instance of time, find it's acceleration.
- eg. v = 2x ; assume t = 0 ; x = 2 m ; find a(t)?
- Define instantaneous acceleration.
- The velocity of the particle is given by v = 4t2 + 7 cm/s. Find the velocity of the particle during the time interval t1 = 2s and t2 = 4s also find the average acceleration during the same interval of time.
