# Can a situation exist in which an object has zero acceleration and nonzero velocity?

Definitely. Acceleration is defined as a change in velocity, so as long as the velocity

doesn't change, acceleration is zero.

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

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity, a=dv/dt Therefor if a= 0 the velocity is constant or constantly the same. It can have any value however while it remains the same.

if velocity is constant, that means then the net acceleration acting on the object is equal to zero

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.

This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.

Yes. This happens, for example, when you throw an upject directly up, and it reaches its highest point. In that case, its velocity is zero, and its acceleration is -9.8. (If it didn't have acceleration, it would stay up there.)

The acceleration of an object is related to velocity since acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.

Velocity. A change in VELOCITY will always indicate the acceleration of an object.

No. Acceleration is change of velocity / time. If there is no change in velocity, there is no acceleration.

Acceleration is change of velocity. If velocity is constant ... "no change" ... then acceleration is zero.

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. Constant velocity means zero acceleration.

Yes. If an object has an acceleration that is opposite its velocity, it is slowing down.

Velocity is defined as the rate at which an object changes its velocity; therefore if there is zero velocity then acceleration is neutral as well.

acceleration is the increase of speed in a moving object. velocity is the speed and direction of a moving object.

Yes, an object can have a velocity of zero and an acceleration of zero. It's an object with a velocity of zero and no net applied force.

An object at rest has a constant velocity of zero. Both the object at rest and the object moving at constant velocity have zero acceleration.

An object that has reached its terminal velocity is going at a constant velocity. Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity. The rate of change is zero. Therefore, the acceleration is zero.

If there is acceleration (uniform or otherwise, but non-zero acceleration), the velocity changes. Constant velocity means that the velocity does not change.

"Acceleration" means change of velocity. If velocity is constant, then acceleration is zero.

Acceleration is the change of velocity per unit time. Once the object has a constant velocity, its acceleration will be zero.
