### The rate at which an object changes position is called what?

A change in position in a certain amount of time is called motion.

### What is rate of change of motion is called?

The rate of change of motion is called jerk, jolt, surge, or lurch. The rate of change is derivative of motion with respect to time, velocity, and/or position.

### What is the rate of change of position at a specific point in time?

The rate of change of position is the velocity. The velocity at a specific point in time is called the instantaneous velocity.

### Is acceleration the rate of change of the rate of change of position?

no its speed that definds the rate change of position

### The rate of change in position?

The rate of change in position with respect to time is called velocity. It is a vector quantity that includes both the speed and direction of an object's motion. Velocity can be calculated by dividing the change in position by the change in time.

### What is rate of acceleration?

The rate of change of velocity. (As velocity is the rate of change of position.)

### How is motion similar to acceleration?

If we replace "motion" with a similar term called "velocity", both are rates of change:* Velocity is the rate of change of position (the derivative of the position, with respect to time). * Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity (that makes it the second derivative of the position, with respect to time).

### Why is velocity the rate of change of its position?

rate of change of position is just a fancy way of saying "speed"

### What is rate of change of position?

Rate of change of position = speedIf you also reveal the direction of the speed, then you have velocity.

### Can a catalyst change rate of reaction equilibrium position or both?

A catalyst cannot change the equilibrium position. However, it can change its rate.

rest

### What is the rate and change in position?

The answer is rest
