m/s/s is the same thing mathematically as m/s^2 . . . but it is MORE correct conceptually to write it m/s/s because acceleration is measuring the change in velocity (m/s) over a certain number of seconds (s). I suppose the best way to write it would be (m/s)/s but no one does that. hmmm . . . maybe they should!?!
