No. "Miles per hour" is a speed. An acceleration might be "Miles per hour per hour",

or "miles per hour squared".

### What is the unit of acceleration measured in kilometers per hour?

Kilometers per hour is used to measure speed, not acceleration. In SI, the acceleration is commonly measured in meters per square second.Kilometers per hour is used to measure speed, not acceleration.

### Explain per second per second?

"Per second per second" is a measurement of acceleration. If an object (such as a car) is moving, its speed can be measured in terms of miles per hour, or feet per second (which work out to be a similar figure to miles per hour). If the car is accelerating, the acceleration can be measured in terms of additional speed (feet per second) that is acquired in a given second, therefore, feet per second per second. Get it?

### What speed is measured in kilometers per hour and time is measured in hours and the unit of acceleration is?

i think it is speed

### How does constant velocity differ from constant acceleration?

Constant velocity is a measure of distance traveled per unit of time at a uniform speed, such as miles per hour or feet per second. Constant acceleration is a measure of a continuing increase in velocity per unit of time, as when a car speeds up from 30 miles per hour to 40 miles per hour in 5 seconds, then from 40 miles per hour to 50 miles per hour during the next 5 seconds. It will then have had a constant acceleration of 10 miles per hour per 5 seconds.

### Is speed always measured by miles per hour?

No. Speed can be measured in other ways as well, such as km per hour and meters per second.
