# Can an object with 0 velocity have 0 acceleration?

###### Wiki User

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 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

0 velocity 0 acceleration The forces on the object are balanced: it is in equilibrium. (The forces are balanced on any object with 0 acceleration, even if it is moving.)

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 is the change in velocity of an object. If an object is travelling at an unchanging speed, its speed is neither increasing (which would make a positive acceleration) nor decreasing (which would make a negative acceleration). Thus, the acceleration is 0.

Constant velocity = 0 Acceleration = 0 therefore force = 0

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

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.

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

If an object is sustaining a constant velocity it has 0 acceleration, because acceleration is either increasing or decreasing speed.

Zero acceleration means that the velocity doesn't change. It doesn't mean that there is no velocity.

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

Zero net force on a object means that the velocity of the object stays constant (this includes 0, when the object is not moving). Lets look at Newton's 2nd law of motion: Fnet=ma An object can never have a 0 mass (then it wouldn't exist). Therefore, the acceleration has to be 0 for the net force to be zero. Recall at acceleration is the change of velocity over time. In order for the acceleration to be zero, the velocity has to be constant. If the object is at 0 velocity (not moving), the object would remain unmoving when a net force of 0 is applied to it. If the object is moving at a certain velocity, it would remain at that velocity. Therefore, a zero not force cannot do anything to an object.

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

-- acceleration = 0 -- velocity (speed and direction) exactly equal to the observer's velocity

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.

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.

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.
