Acceleration Quizzes & Trivia

Is gravity always getting you down? Then let’s get acceleration a chance to win us over: “Who was the first scientist and theoretician to prove that all objects fall to earth with constant acceleration?”, “What is the acceleration of free-fall on the moon?”, “What is instantaneous acceleration?”, and “How else is constant acceleration called?”.

And these are not the only interesting question from these quizzes! You will also find out about the fact that an oscillating pendulum with velocity and acceleration marked, experiences both tangential and centripetal acceleration; or about circular motion, that is the constant speed along a circular path.

Or about the relation to relativity which is a special theory of relativity that describes the behavior of objects travelling relative to other objects at speeds approaching that of light in a vacuum. Not so boring now, is it?!
