Give an example of negative acceleration from daily life situation.
Negative acceleration is nothing but retardation.
Acceleration is rate of change of velocity.
But, negative acceleration means that the rate of change of velocity is negative or velocity decreases.
1) When we apply brakes in a moving car, then negative acceleration acts on it and the car stops.
2) When we throw a ball upwards, then also negative acceleration acts on it. Thus when the ball reaches the highest point, velocity of the ball becomes zero.

There is an argument about uniform acceleration between Mr X and Mr Y. Mr X says “acceleration means that farther you go faster you go”. Mr Y says “acceleration means that longer you go the faster you go”. Whose statement is correct?Evergreen - Science

An object is dropped from rest at a height of 150 m and simultaneously another object is dropped from rest at a height 100 m. What is the difference in their heights after 2 s if both the objects drop with same accelerations? How does the difference in heights vary with time?NCERT Science - Exemplar
When you apply brakes to a car, in which direction is its acceleration?Evergreen - Science
You are sitting in a stationary car. There is a helium balloon tied to its floor. You accelerate and obviously feel like you are being pushed backwards (against the direction of your accelerations). The balloon.All In One - Science
