Yes and no... If you are in the middle of a physics lesson then there is. In normal descriptions used by the man in the street there is no difference.Is there any difference between speed up and accelerate?
Contexts:Give us some contexts, Normandete. The two aren't interchangeable in many circumstances.
They both sound very odd, and I don't think you can use "accelerate" transitively like that.John, speed up the car or we won't arrive in time for the meeting. Vs John, accelerate the car or we won't arrive in time for the meeting.
What is the difference in this case?
I don't think it works transitively.Is it possible to use "speed up" + "vehicle" (car, etc)? I heard it is wrong to say "speed up the car".
How is speed up used in my question above?
