With the help of this calculator you can perform several calculations concerning acceleration. For a given constant acceleration you may calculate the time until which a certain speed is reached or in which a certain distance is covered. All calculations assume a starting speed of zero and they may also be performed vice versa.

**Usage:**
Always choose the correct unit in the corresponding pull-down-menu
before you type a value.

At first give the value for the acceleration. This is either done directly in the
field for the acceleration a on top or you calculate the value.
For this you type the speed v and the time t_{v} after which the speed
is reached into the corresponding fields.
You may also type the distance s and the time t_{s}
in which the distance was covered during the constant acceleration.

With the input acceleration you can now perform calculations by typing a time
t_{v} or t_{s} and calculate the speed that was reached or
the distance that was covered during this time, respectively.
Also calculations vice versa are possible.
After the input of a value the calculation is performed
with the next mouse-click on any free space of the window or on the
"calculate"-button.

For calculations with a new value of the acceleration you can type this into the
field a. For other inputs click on the "reset" button before.

**Example:**
A car accelerates within 7 seconds from zero to a speed of 100 km/h.
What is its acceleration and which distance is covered in the time?

If you had made inputs before, click on the "reset" button.
Then choose "km/h (kilometer per hour)" as unit for the speed in the
corresponding pull-down-menu and type the value of the speed "100"
Then type the value for the time ("7") in seconds.

After the next mouse-click on any free space of the window or on the
"calculate"-button you can read the value of the acceleration
(a = 3.9683 m/s²). With the corresponding pull-down-menu you may also choose
another unit (e. g. 13.019 ft/s²),

Now type the time in seconds for t_{s} ("7").
After the next mouse-click on any free space of the window or on the
"calculate"-button you can see that the car would have covered
a distance of 97 m during its constant acceleration.
