### What measurements do you need in order calculate acceleration?

Speed and time. As acceleration is the change in speed over time.However, if you do not have a direct reading of speed, you will need to claculate that also, from distance over time.So all the units are:-Distance = MetresTime. = SecondsSpeed = m/sAcceleration = m/s/s or m/s2
