b) rate of change of velocity
c) rate of change of acceleration
d) slowing down, speeding up, changing direction, or maintaining a constant speed

Which of the following is NOT true about acceleration?
a) The SI unit is m/s/s.
b) It can be calculated based on change in velocity over time.
c) Whenever it is negative, the object is slowing down.
d) Whenever it is positive, the object's velocity is increasing.

One girl and one boy race. They begin from rest and accelerate in the same direction. The girl’s acceleration is greater than the boy's. If the initial velocity of each person is the same, then:
a) The final velocity of each person will be the same.
b) The final velocity of the boy will be greater than the final velocity of the girl.
c) The final velocity of the girl will be greater than the final velocity of the boy.
