What do we mean by accelerator?

A device, especially the gas pedal of a motor vehicle, for increasing speed. noun

A substance that increases the speed of a reaction. noun

A particle accelerator. noun

A device in a motor-car by which the operator may render inoperative the speed governor of the motor. If the governor is of the centrifugal type, as the speed increases the balls or weights fly outward against the action of a spring. The accelerator increases the tension of the spring or draws the balls inward directly, so that the governor ceases to act to close the throttle or regulate speed as the motor increases its number of revolutions above the limit set by the normal tension of the springs. noun

One who or that which accelerates; a hastener. noun

One who, or that which, accelerates. Also as an adj.. noun

One who, or that which, accelerates. noun

A device for causing acceleration. noun

A substance which speeds up chemical reactions. noun

An accelerator pedal. noun

A chemical that reduces development time. noun

A device that accelerates charged subatomic particles. noun

A muscle or nerve that speed the performance of an action. noun

Accelerator key noun

A valve that regulates the supply of fuel to the engine noun

(chemistry) a substance that initiates or accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected noun

A scientific instrument that increases the kinetic energy of charged particles noun

A pedal that controls the throttle valve noun
