### Can a object with no acceleration be stationary?

If acceleration means to increase in speed or pace, then a
stationary object is static, without movement, without
acceleration. But, if an object is moving at a constant rate, then
I suggest acceleration is not present, unless, or until the objects
speed increases.
Yes, an object with no acceleration may be stationary.

### How does force affect stationary objects of different masses?

Force accelerates stationary masses as acceleration a=f/m;
theacceleration is inverse to the mass. The smaller the mass the
larger the acceleration and the larger the mass the smaller the
acceleration.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Physics

### How do you work out velocity when given acceleration and time?

Answer: v=u + at
v (Velocity) = u (Starting velocity) + a (acceleration) x t
(time)
So, starting from stationary (u=0), the velocity is simply a x
t
e.g. if the acceleration is 5mph per second per second, after 10
seconds you would be travelling at 50mph.
Answer: The above is for constant acceleration. In the case of
variable acceleration, integration has to be used.

### 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 acceleration or in other
words no extra force to speed up.
Constant acceleration when the object is acceleration constant,
it means that the speed of the object is change at the same rate
each second. The acceleration rate at which the object is
travelling is constant.
for example, when a car is stationary at a traffic light...
