Updated on: September 25th, 2023 The dimensional formula of acceleration M0L1T-2. The rate at which velocity changes is referred to as acceleration. The symbol for it is a. Its base is m/s2. Acceleration can be written as Acceleration = Velocity/ Time

As we know, the dimension of velocity (v) = [LT-1 ]

The dimension of time (t) = [T]

The dimensional formula of acceleration is: Acceleration = LT-1/T = M0L1T-2

### Types of acceleration

• Uniform acceleration: If an object is traveling in a straight line with a constant increase in velocity at equal time intervals, then the object is said to be in uniform acceleration. The free-falling object is an example.
• Instantaneous acceleration: The acceleration of an object at any time is called instantaneous acceleration.
• Non-uniform acceleration: If an object is traveling with a constant increase in velocity and not at equal intervals of time is called non-uniform acceleration. Bus leaving or moving from the bus stop is an example.

Summary:

## What is the dimensional formula of acceleration? (a)M0LT-2 (b)M0LT-1 (c)M0L-1T-2 (d)M0L0T-2

M0L1T-2 is the dimensional formula of acceleration. The acceleration dimensional formula is Acceleration = LT-1/T = M0L1T-2.
