acceleration potential

acceleration potential

[ak‚sel·ə′rā·shən pə′ten·shəl]
(fluid mechanics)
The sum of the potential of the force field acting on a fluid and the ratio of the pressure to the fluid density; the negative of its gradient gives the acceleration of a point in the fluid.

But speed machine it certainly is, complete with the 560PS 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 powerplant from the RS 6 Avant to deliver the same 0-62mph acceleration potential of 3.9 seconds and a governed top speed of 155mph.
In the case of the RS 7 Sportback, pictured right, Audi is using the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 from the fiery RS 6 Avant to give the newcomer a 0-62mph acceleration potential of 3.9 seconds and a governed top speed of 155mph.
The model, pictured, is powered by a 2.5-litre V6 direct injection petrol engine producing 206bhp, acceleration potential of 0-62 in 8.6 seconds and top speed of 142mph.

Features and benefits include touchscreen control system; adjustable amperage and voltage; acceleration potential at 10-50 keV, designed for R&D evaluation and user friendly design allowing for ease of operation.
Proton and neutron counting data were collected for 13 run series, each with a different proton detector and acceleration potential. The corrected value of the neutron lifetime for each series was calculated and plotted vs backscattering fraction, as shown in Fig.
It's far from the slickest shifter in town, but the ratios are well chosen to provide an optimum balance between acceleration potential and cruising refinement.
Gunning for the Peugeot 206 GTi 180 and Renault Clio 182, it will be a real flying machine, with a 0-60 mph acceleration potential of seven seconds and a 140 mph top speed.
