Speeding up.

### True or false Negative acceleration always means that a system is slowing down?

false A car can have a negative acceleration and be speeding up. A negative acceleration determines the direction of the acceleration A car with forward acceleration will speed up in the forward direction A car moving forward with a negative acceleration will slow down A car not moving with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction A car moving backward with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction

### Examples for acceleration?

speeding of car speeding of a free falling object.

### Can an object have a negative acceleration and be speeding up?

Yes, an object can have a negative acceleration and still be speeding up. This occurs when the direction of the acceleration is opposite to the direction of the object's velocity. For example, if a car is moving forward with a velocity of 20 m/s and experiences a negative acceleration of -2 m/s^2 (deceleration), it will be speeding up while slowing down.

### What is negative and acceleration?

Positive acceleration = speeding up. Negative acceleration = slowing down.

### What is meaning of acceleration?

The process of speeding up

### Does earth have more acceleration than a car?

No and yes. Acceleration is the action of Speeding up while speed is Distance over time. Speed yes. Acceleration. No one would ever know

### What is the acceleration of a car moving along a straight line path that increases its speed from zero?

The acceleration of the car is equal to the rate of change of its speed over time. When a car goes from zero speed to a higher speed, it experiences positive acceleration in the direction of its motion.

### When does an object have no acceleration?

When it is stationary, or when the velocity is constant. If it is speeding up or slowing down, it has acceleration.

### What is positive acceleration negative acceleration?

Positive is speeding up and negative is slowing down

### Why car still accelerates after slowing down?

Acceleration is a change in velocity. Assuming a constant direction, if you're speeding up that is positive acceleration. If you are slowing down, that's negative acceleration. Either way you are accelerating.

### What is meant by de-acceleration?

de acceleration just means slowing down. Acceleration means speeding up. Actually any change in speed is considered to be acceleration. Slowing down is called negative acceleration or (de-acceration) and speeding up is called positive excelleration.
