This also indicates a negative acceleration. $v = u + \left( a \right)t,$ where an is the acceleration, $u$ is the initial velocity, and t is the time, since the motion is uniformly retarded. ${\mathbf{m}}/{\mathbf{se}}{{\mathbf{c}}^2}$ is the SI unit of retardation (meters per second square). Example of uniform retardation: a car travelling at velocity $'v'$ is brought to a stop by applying brakes.
Note:Acceleration is the opposite of retardation, which is a drop in velocity per unit of time. The rate of acceleration can be positive$\left( + \right)$, zero, or negative$\left( - \right)$. Retardation is the opposite of acceleration. Retardation, or Deceleration, is the term for negative acceleration.
