No. Velocity is speed and direction. If you change either variable, the velocity will no longer be constant.

Can a body have a constant velocity but varying speed?

No. If the speed varies, the body accelerates, and velocity cannot be constant.

Can a body have a varying speed if its velocity constantif yes?

No, because constant velocity means constant speed and constant direction

Can the speed of a body be constant still varying its velocity?

Yes. Velocity is rate (or speed) in a given direction. If you change your direction but not your rate (or speed) then you have changed your velocity without changing speed.

Can a body have constant velocity but varying speed?

Yes, velocity involves speed and direction. So if the direction and the speed change at a certain rate, the velocity could stay the same.

Can a body have constant speed and still have a varying velocity?

Yes, if you are going in a circle or otherwise changing direction.

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 speed ?The answer to that one is also "yes", for example when it is moving in a circle, the speed is constant but the velocity is changing all the time (in direction).

Can a body have constant velocity but changing speed?

No, not at all possible. But constant speed with changing velocity is possible.

Can speed of a body change if its velocity is constant?

No. A body with constant velocity is either stationary or going at constant speed in a constant direction. The usual interpretation of speed and velocity goes like this. A velocity is a vector with magnitude and direction. The magnitude is usually called its speed. Changing a speed must change the length of the vector and changing the length of the velocity vector has to change the velocity.

Does a body moving with constant speed have constant velocity?

No. A body can have constant speed but changing direction thus changing velocity. For example, an orbiting body may have a constant speed s=wr, but its direction is constantly changing as it follows the curve of its orbit.

Can a body have a constant speed and a changing velocity?

"Velocity" means the speed of the object and the direction in which it's moving.If the direction changes, then the velocity has changed, even though the speedmay be constant.

Is it possible for a body to move in a circle with constant speed constant linear velocity?

No. The linear velocity can never be equal when speed is constant. This is because direction is changing and therefore linear velocity changes.

Is it possible for a body to have acceleration when moving with constant velocity explain?

the question is very simple.no a body does not have acceleration when it is moving with constant velocity ,because a body posses acceleration when its velocity is not remain conserved or constant.yes if a body have constant speed it may have acceleration but not in case of constant velocity.

Can the speed of a body vary if its velocity is constant?

No. "Velocity" means the speed and direction of motion. If either of them is changing, then velocity isn't constant. (By the way, that's what "acceleration" means: Any change in velocity.)

Can a body have constant velocity and changing speed?

No, in order for the velocity to be constant, the speed has to be constant. Speed is a scalar, meaning that it is just a number. (A car goes 50 miles per hour). Velocity is a vector, which indicates that it needs a measure of its displacement and a direction. (A car is going 50 mph to the east). A body can have a constant speed but a changing velocity because the direction can change while the speed is constant. (A car goes 50 mph around a roundabout). However, a body can not have a constant velocity with a changing speed. A car can not be slowing down yet still be going the same speed and direction.

Can a body have constant velocity but have variable speed explain?

No. Speed is the magnitude of velocity. If the speed varies, so will the velocity, even if you are moving in a uniform direction.

It is possible for a body to have acceleration when moving with costant velocity and constant speed?

constant velocity means no acceleration. An object can be moving at constant speed, like a satellite in orbit, but its velocity is changing because direction is changing

Can an object have constant speed but variable velocity?

I think a body in uniform circular motion can have a constant speed, but variable velocity. Since this body is in circular motion, it changes it's direction. Thus having a variable velocity.

Can an objeact have constant speed and but variable velocity?

Speed is a scalar quantity while velocity is a vector quantity.It is possible that an object can have constant speed but if speed is constant while direction of motion is changing constantly then it means that body has variable velocity.An example of this phenomena is a body moving in a circle whose speed is constant but velocity is changing every instant due to change in direction at every instant.

Is it possible for a body to have acceleration when with constant velocity?

No. The definition of acceleration is a change in velocity, i.e. speed and/or direction. So constant velocity means zero acceleration.

What is the condition in which a body moving with uniform speed has variable velocity?

Uniform circular motion. The speed is constant but the direction thus the velocity is variable.

Can the velocity of a car which is turning a curve be held constant?

The speed can be constant but the velocity can't, because the directionof motion ... which is a component of velocity ... is changing. Also the velocity of a moving body changes when its speed changes but remains moving towards the same direction ... :) :]

Can the velocity of a body remain constant in circular motions?

No. Since the object's direction changes all the time, it follows that its velocity is not constant. Its speed, on the other hand, may or may not be constant.

When a body has velocity no constant has acceleration or no?

Yes. If a body has a constant velocity there is no acceleration, but if the velocity is changing there is acceleration present.

Is it possible for a body to have constant speed but variable velocity?

Yes. Velocity includes the direction of the motion. If the direction changes, then that meansthe velocity changes, even if the speed is constant.Anything rotating at constant speed in a closed path has constantly-changing velocity.Like a point on a phonograph record, a point on a hard disk drive, or an orbiting TV satellite.
