If is possible, someone could help me with the search of the ecuations or functions for velocity and acceleration or tell me their location on the source code of Tracker, because I have spent lots of hours searching and I couldn't  find them. Any Help will be very appreciated.
(I speak Spanish, so I am sorry for any errors on my English)

You can find the algorithms used for both the velocity and acceleration by right-clicking any plot in Tracker and choosing Algorithms... from the popup menu. Doug

You can also find more information in Tracker Help. See Point Mass or just search Tracker Help for "algorithms". Doug
