    Re: explanation of vs explanation for

    We can say this is the explanation of the accident. For example, to talk about a report that explains the accident. There isn't much of a difference between "explanation of" and "explanation for".

    For a more detail explanation of the differences between 'of' and 'for' read of vs. for
