Vector Function Time Series AccelerationSource:
Takes a numeric vector and will return the velocity of that vector.
Takes a numeric vector and will return the velocity of that vector. The velocity of a time series is computed by taking the first difference, so $$x_t - x_t1$$
This function can be used on it's own. It is also the basis for the function
