Common definitions

Change in velocity per unit time as caused by external forces.

In physics, acceleration is the rate of change of velocity of an object over time. An object's acceleration is the net result of all forces acting upon the object. In Orbiter Space Flight Simulator, acceleration is measured in meters per second squared ${\displaystyle (m/s^{2})}$.
