**Acceleration** is how quickly the** velocity** is changing whether it be **speed**, **direction** or both. **Acceleration** is a measure of how quickly the **velocity **of an object is changing.

**Speed** is how fast an object is moving in no given direction.** Velocity** is how fast an object is moving in a given direction. In physics, you can calculate the **average speed **by taking the **total distance travelled** and dividing it by the total time required to travel that distance.

**Weight** is the **force** acting on an object due to **gravity**. The **weight** of an object is defined as the force of **gravity** on the object and can be calculated as the **mass** times the **acceleration **due to **gravity**.

**Weight** is the **force** acting on an object due to **gravity**. The **weight** of an object can be defined as the **force** of **gravity **on the object. Since the **weight** is a force, its unit is the **Newton**.
