Constant speed is movement at a fixed (constant) distance per unit of time. The same amount of distance is covered by the object in the same amount of time at each measurement of that same interval. An example of an object moving at a constant speed might be an object in orbit. Something up their above the drag of the atmosphere will move at a constant speed, and will continuously move around the earth at the same speed. Note that velocity is speed with a direction vector. An object in orbit will have a constant speed, but its velocity will be constantly changing because it is constantly changing the direction it is moving.

# On a graph of distance versus time what is constant speed shown by?

  If the line formed by the graph is straight, the speed is constant. A horizontal line would show the object as stationary.

# Can an object have a constant speed but not a constant velocity?

Yes. Velocity is made up of speed and direction (i.e. 12mph North). So a car driving in a circle could have constant speed, but its velocity would be continually changing.

# What is constant speed and constant velocity?

Constant speed is a fixed rate of displacement of an object. Constant velocity is a fixed rate of displacement in a fixed direction. That might not make sense, but let's dig i

# Is constant acceleration same as constant speed?

no because constant acceleration describes and object speeding up at an equal rate wheras constant speed describes an object travelling at the same speed over time. By the way

# Why is the speed of light constant if it is constant?

It is constant, because it's determined by the electrical  properties of the   vacuum or material stuff it's traveling through. So as long as the  electrical   permi

# Is constant speed constant velocity?

No. Velocity includes a direction vector, which speed does not have.

# If you have a constant velocity do you have to have a constant speed?

Yes, speed is the scalar of velocity.

# How are constant speed and constant acceleration different?

There is a huge difference between constant speed and constant acceleration. Constant speed is when the object is travelling constant, no change in its velocity and accelerati

# Can a body have constant velocity when it has constant speed?

Of course. In fact, in order to have constant velocity, it must have constant speed. What you really want to know: Can a body have changing velocity when it has constant spe

# Does constant speed mean constant velocity?

No. Circular motion can have constant speed but varying velocity. Constant speed means constant speed in any direction, like a car on cruise control turning a corner. Co

# What is constant speed in mathematical terms?

It's when the rate of change of distance per unit time is constant. Speed (or more precisely, velocity) is represented by the differential equation ds/dt, where s = displaceme

# Does constant speed give you constant velocity?

No. The speed can be consant but direction can change and thus the velocity changes.

# What is constant speed DC motor?

Dc shunt motor is constant speed motor.Its speed is constant with armature current.This shunt motor is used in paper mills and drilling machines

# When can an object a constant speed but not a constant velocity?

Consider an object turning in a circle at a constant speed. Because velocity is not just the value of speed, but also the direction in which the object is moving, the velocity

# What Is a constant speed?

When the  speed of an object remains the same - it does not increase or  decrease - we say it is moving at a  constant speed.

# Can an object have a constant speed and a constant acceleration?

Yes, it it's going round in a circle, for example.

# What is constant speed Give an example?

if an object is moving without any net force or acceleration, it is  moving at constant speed, or constant velocity. For example a  satellite orbiting the earth is moving at
