###### Wiki User

Yes. If the velocity doesn't change, there is zero acceleration.

It's possible, but not necessary, that a particle moving with constant speedhas zero acceleration. In order for acceleration to be zero, it's also necessarythat the particle be moving in a straight line.An object moving with constant speed around a curve has acceleration."Acceleration" does not mean "speeding up".

When a pendulum reaches its maximum elongation the velocity is zero and the acceleration is maximum

Yes. Eg : in case of a uniform circular motion. In general, for every motion in which direction of motion of particle keeps changing continuously and the particle moves with same speed, then the net acceleration is non-zero, although tangential acceleration is zero.

Yes. Acceleration is independent of speed. A perfect example of an object with zero speed but nonzero acceleration is an object at the apex of being thrown upward. The entire time it is in the air it is accelerating downward. At its maximum height its speed is zero.

No. Acceleration is the change of velocity. If velocity is constant, at any speed, acceleration is zero.

Velocity is speed together with its direction.Acceleration indicates a change in velocity ... speed or direction or both.Change of direction means acceleration, even if speed is constant.Constant velocity means constant speed and direction ... zero acceleration.

Zero acceleration is when a particle doesn't move in an amount of time, thus the velocity is a constant.

If your acceleration is zero, then yes, you are traveling at a constant speed. The path does not matter. Acceleration measures the change in velocity, so an acceleration of zero means that there is zero change in velocity and therefore the speed is constant.

It doesn't. If acceleration is zero, that just means that velocity isn'tchanging ... the motion is in a straight line at a constant speed.

Yes. Zero acceleration means you are not changing your speed (speed up or slow down) or changing direction. Zero acceleration is a constant speed in a linear direction. A speed implies you are moving.

Only for an instant. Acceleration is a change in velocity. When the derivative of acceleration with respect to time is zero, the velocity would be zero.

Acceleration is zero when the object's speed and direction stop changing.

In that case, basically no force acts on the particle, and the particle moves at a constant speed. This constant speed may, or may not, be zero.

NO, acceleration refers to change in speed, either speeding up(positive acceleration) or slowing down (negative acceleration.)Zero acceleration merely means it is holding a constant speed, whatever that may be (including, but not limited to a constant speed of zero.)

An object at rest has zero speed and zero acceleration.

It means the speed doesn't change. Stated in different terms, the acceleration is zero.It means the speed doesn't change. Stated in different terms, the acceleration is zero.It means the speed doesn't change. Stated in different terms, the acceleration is zero.It means the speed doesn't change. Stated in different terms, the acceleration is zero.

It's not. If you speed is constant (but not zero), then your velocity won't be zero, either.You may be confusing this with the following: If your VELOCITY (not your speed) is constant, then your ACCELERATION is zero. Acceleration refers to how quickly velocity changes, so if velocity doesn't change at all, acceleration is zero.

positive acceleration is when things speed up; negative acceleration is when things slow down; and zero acceleration is when things do not speed up or slow down, this is called constant speed, or no change in velocity.

It's not possible. Acceleration is defined as a change in velocity, so if the speed is constant, the acceleration is zero. If the acceleration is zero, so is the net force.

Velocity basically means how fast you are going. Acceleration means how much your speed is increasing. So if there is zero velocity that means the object is not moving. If there is zero acceleration, that means that the speed is not increasing but there is actual speed and the object is not increasing it's speed what ever that may be.

f=ma that in equilibrium postion the force are zero that why the in sample pendulum the force is zero that mean that acceleration is also zero that point velocity is maximum

If displacement of a particle is zero in a uniform circular motion, then the distance travelled by that particle is not zero, kinetic energy is constant, speed is constant and work done is zero

False If the acceleration is constant the speed increases. If the speed is constant the acceleration is zero.

constant speed=0 acceleration Acceleration is the change in speed. If the speed doesn't change(ie constant) the acceleration is zero.
