1. a vehicle’s capacity to gain speed.

.”the three-litre model has spectacular acceleration”

1. 1. a person or thing that causes something to happen or develop more quickly.

.”the country has been th e main accelerator of global growth for a decade”
2. 2. a device, typically a foot pedal, which controls the speed of a vehicle’s engine.

“he pressed the accelerator to the floor and the taxi shot forward”.

The accelerator pedal is located on the right hand side of the footwell,

and is operated using your right foot only.

This is basically the pedal that sends the fuel into the engine block to get burnt.

and produces power to the wheels.


Acceleration of the vehicle can be a little daunting to new driver’s.

if done properly and effectively can always be safe and sometimes necessary.

For example leaving a junction or a roundabout when there is space would require adequate and timely acceleration.

If one is hesitant with acceleration at this point it can be dangerous and may sometimes lead to dangerous situations.

How to accelerate or pick up speed in a vehicle depends on what type of transmission it is.

In an automatic the vehicle changes the gears for you so to pick up speed all

you need to do is apply pressure to the accelerator pedal.

In a vehicle with manual gears , you would need to change the gears as you accelerate.

in order to carry on picking up speed and to avoid damage to the engine.
