You are driving south on a highway. Then, without changing speed, you round a curve and drive west. Do you accelerate?

• physics -

accleration is indeed change of velocity/time

change of veloctiy= Vf-Vi in this case, the directons are different, so there is a vector change of velocity, thence, an acceleration.
