No, you cannot have a zero displacement and a nonzero average velocity. If the object has not moved any where how can you attain a nonzero velocity? You cannot.

since accelaration is the change in velocity of an object per unit time......if velocity is zero then there is no acceleration.its nt possible

When an object is not accelerating at all. It has constant velocity.

An object moving in a circular path at constant speed will have a non-zero average speed and zero average velocity since velocity is a vector parameter,

No because velocity defined as speed in a given direction so if speed is 0 then velocity must also be 0

Yes. An object moving at constant velocity would have zero acceleration.

Definitely. Acceleration is defined as a change in velocity, so as long as the velocity doesn't change, acceleration is zero.

For velocity to be truly uniform, the object must be moving in a straight line. If that is the case then the acceleration is Zero.

Yes, but only if the instantaneous velocity remains zero during the time inerval. If you are speaking of average velocity over an interval, all bets are off.

Yes. A body having zero velocity has a constant acceleration of zero.

It depends on the frame of reference (where it is).On Earth a body on a table is still rotating around the centre of the Earth. This implies a change of direction and thus having a velocity around the centre and an acceleration acceleration due to centripetal force that makes a body follow a curved path. Eben without this the body is orbiting the sun with the same impact

i will give u an illustration, consider an object projected (thrown)with some initial vertical velocity from the ground such that it traces a open downward parabolicpath, in that path the vertical displacement of the body from the point of projection to the point where it strikes the ground is equal to zero,but it have some velocity.

It is not possible because the average velocity is equal to the displacement in a given time interval, ie: V = (displacement) / (time interval) As the zero displacement average speed will also be zero.

The change in velocity is the area under the graph from t1 to t2. If the initial velocity is zero, the velocity at time, tf, is the area from t = 0 to tf.

Well I tell u like this velocity,v equalls accelaration * time. When v is 0 then accelaration,a and time becomes zero. When a is zero then force is zero then work is zero then Energy is zero then impulse and presrure is zero and when Energy is zero Heat is zero then heat capacity is zero and Magnetic induction is zero.ok any think more/ When the velocity of an object is zero, then the object has no motion at all. (But only according to the observer who says that its velocity is zero. If another observer happens to ride through the first observer's laboratory in a bus and make some measurements on the way, he would say that the object ... and the first observer ... have large and equal velocities.)

The acceleratipn of a body with uniform velocity is zero. Acceleratipn is the time rate of change of velocity. If the velocity is uniform, then its time rate of change is zero.

I'm not a scientist, but the following seems reasonable to me. If your frame of reference is the earth's surface, then it seems clear that an object can have zero velocity and zero acceleration. You could even have non-zero velocity and zero acceleration. What seems impossible is to have zero velocity and non-zero acceleration. When you think of accelaration think of changing velocity. A car moving straight down the highway at a constant speed of 55 mph is neither speeding up nor slowing down. Though it has velocity, there is no change in its velocity so acceleration will be zero. For a car parked on the side of the road, on the other hand, its velocity will be zero but what about its acceleration? Is velocity changing? No, so it will have zero velocity and zero acceleration.Yes.

Velocity of body and acceleration of body is zero implies body is at rest Acceleration of body is zero implies it is in a state of equilibrium Body in equilibrium can have non zero velocity

The acceleration is zero for a body having constant velocity.

During uniform motion, velocity is constant, so there is zero acceleration. Non-uniform motion involves a change in velocity, which means there is acceleration. Accelaration is a change in velocity. A change in velocity occurs when a body slows down, speeds up, or turns (changes direction), or a combination of these.

For an instant, yes - otherwise there would never be any motion. When the object starts moving, it initially has zero velocity.

The momentum of a body is defined as the product of is mas and velocity. Momentum = Mass x Velocity. If a body is at rest then obviously its velocity is zero. Therefore, its momentum also becomes zero.
