Expert Answer:

Acceleration is rate of change of velocity .
 
If a is acceleration and v is velocity , then we have ,  a = dv/dt
 
( dv/dt means ia n small time interval , velocity changes from v to v +dv )
 
If acceleration a = 0 , dv/dt = 0 , i.e., velocity is uninform and velocity remains constant
 
If acceleration a > 0 , dv/dt > 0 , i.e., velocity is keep on increasing
 
If acceleration a < o , dv/dt < 0 , i.e., velocity is keep on decreasing
