Velocity is the rate of change of position. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.

In other words, velocity tells you how an object's position changes over time. Acceleration will tell you how the velocity of an object is changing in time.

In terms of calculus, we can formulate the following relation for a velocity function v(t), and an acceleration function a(t):

$\Rightarrow a\left(t\right)=\frac{dv\left(t\right)}{dt}$

or equivalently

$\Rightarrow v\left(t\right)=\int a\left(t\right)dt$

The units of velocity are $\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}$

The units of acceleration are $\frac{\text{m}}{{\text{s}}^{2}}$

A husband and wife take turns pulling their child in a wagon along a horizontal sidewalk. Each exerts a constant force and pulls the wagon through the same displacement. They do the same amount of work, but the husband's pulling force is directed ${58}^{o}$ above the horizontal, and the wife's pulling force is directed ${38}^{o}$ above the horizontal. The husband pulls with a force whose magnitude is 60 N. What is the magnitude of the pulling force exerted by his wife?

Can displacement be negative?
