# What is the Dimensional Formula of Acceleration?

Posted in Dimensional Formulae | Email This Post |Acceleration is defined as change in velocity per unit time. So its formula is

**Acceleration = Change in Velocity/Time Taken**

Now

Velocity = Displacement/Time

Velocity = L/T

So

Acceleration = L/T^{2}

**So Dimensional Formula of Acceleration= M ^{0}L^{1}T^{-2}**

**SI unit of Acceleration is ms**

^{-2}The Dimensional Formula of Acceleration due to gravity (g) is also same as acceleration.

Thank you

its so simple to know

Thank you

A very good step for student as well as teacher.

I like this step

Thank u sooo much

Thanks
