# Can an object traveling at constant velocity have acceleration why?

If a velocity or speed is constant there isn't an acceleration. This is because the acceleration is the change in speed or velocity and if it's constant then there sn't a change.

No. An object traveling at a constant velocity is not accelerating.

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

An object in uniform circular motion undergoes constant acceleration but moves at constant "speed".Constant "velocity" means no acceleration.

If an object is traveling at a constant velocity, its acceleration is 0. Even if it traveled for 2 years.

Acceleration is defined as the change in velocity, thus if velocity is constant then there is no change, and hence the acceleration would be zero. A =change in velocity/time A=0/anything = 0

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.

Acceleration, which is the change of velocity over the change in time, will equal zero when there is no change in velocity. This can occur when an object is stationary or when an object is traveling at a constant velocity.

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.

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.

False. An object at constant velocity is at zero or no acceleration. Of course, if the acceleration is always 0, then it is a constant acceleration of zero.

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

A falling object doesn't have constant velocity.It has constant acceleration. That means that its velocity increases at a steady (constant) rate.The rate is called the "acceleration of gravity".

An object changing its velocity by 10 m/s in each consecutive second is known asconstant acceleration since the velocity is changing by a constant amount each second. Although an object with a constant acceleration should not be confused with an object with a constant velocity.

When the acceleration is at constant 0, then the velocity will be constant.

yes the acceleration is at zero because there is no change in acceleration if the velocity is constant

No, the definition of acceleration is the increase change in velocity over time. An acceleration can also be a decrease in velocity over time. Constant velocity refers to an object that maintains the same velocity as time progresses. If the object has an acceleration, its velocity will not remain constant. In the case of rotational velocity there is a constant internal acceleration that has the magnitude v2/r

When you (or an object) travel without changing speed, then you have constant velocity (speed). This means there is no change in speed (acceleration) when you (or an object) is traveling.

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

Yes. An object moving at constant velocity has zero acceleration. The constant velocity van be any constant including zero velocity. Mathematics acceleration a=dv/dt = 0. Solving this gives v = constant.

To be very technical regarding the language of the question, No.The question specifies "constant velocity" ... meaning constant speed AND direction.If either of these is changing, then acceleration is present.But if the question meant to say "constant SPEED", then the answer is Yes. An object may be traveling at constant speed, but if its path is not a straight line, then there is acceleration present.
