Meters per second squared, or just meters per second per second. Either way is correct.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Which is measured in meters per second per second?

Acceleration


Why is gravity measured in meters per second?

Gravity is actually not measured in meters per second. Gravity is a force and is therefore measured in Newton's. A force is an acceleration, which is equivalent to the product of a mass and an acceleration. The acceleration of gravity is constant on a planet and is measured in meters per second per second, or m / s^2.


Why is acceleration often expressed with units of meters per second squared?

Because if speed is measured in meters per second (m/s) and time is measured in seconds, the SI unit of acceleration is meters per second per second (m/s2). ^_^


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. In SI, the acceleration is commonly measured in meters per square second.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. In SI, the acceleration is commonly measured in meters per square second.


What is the quantity measured in meters per second called?

Speed or acceleration


How do you label force mass and acceleration?

force: F, measured in newtons, N acceleration: a, measured in meters per second per second, ms-2


Why are the units for acceleration meters per second?

Acceleration is not measured in meters/second. Meters/second is a unit of speed. Since acceleration is defined as change of speed divided by time, the units are meters/second/second, usually written as meters/second2.


How many meters per second is the costant equal to the acceleration of gravity?

It is about 9.814 meters per second per second on Earth


What are three units in which acceleration can be measured?

Acceleration can be measured in meters per second squared, or in miles per hour squared, or in kilometers per hour squared, etc.


What are the units for Acceleration?

The equation for acceleration is a=f/m (acceleration equals force divided by mass). Therefore, acceleration is measured in m/s (meters per second) or m/s2 (meters per second squared).


What is an accurate statement of an acceleration value translated from symbols into words 3 meters per second 3 meters per second squared 3 squared meters per second 3 meters in 3 se?

Acceleration is a change in speed, measured per second and so would be meters per second per second or meters per second squared.


What is accerationmeasured in the unit?

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.Velocity is the rate of change of position. Since position is measured in length units (for example, meters), velocity is in meters per second, and acceleration is in meters per second per second. In most unit systems, there isn't a specific term for this, though you will sometimes see acceleration measured in "gees", which is the standard accelration due to gravity on Earth, or 9.8 meters per second per second.
