Displacement: Grows with time, at an increaing rate. Velocity: Grows with time, at a constant rate. Acceleration: Greater than zero, remains constant with time.

displacement

If your velocity is constant, then your acceleration is zero.

Zero acceleration and constant velocity describe this.

Acceleration= Distance/time (distance divided by time) That's the dumbest answer I've ever heard.. Acceleration = Final Velocity - Initial Velocity/Time Velocity = Displacement/Time So you can't calculate acceleration from distance and time, you can only do velocity.

If you have constant acceleration, then you can't have constant velocity. (Unless the acceleration is constantly zero.)Final velocity = [initial velocity] + [ (acceleration) x (time) ]

there is no acceleration if the body is moving with constant velocity

this my sound rather daft but this is a bit of a trick question, the speed is the same so straight away you would think the acceleration is constant right....???? Wrong the displacement of the object is changing (displacement is the distance being travelled with a direction, a vector quantity.) as the displacement is changing so is the velocity, as velocity is displacement/time. as the velocity is changing so is the acceleration because acceleration is then change in velocity divided by time.

acceration = velocity X time

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

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

Yes. If a body has a constant velocity there is no acceleration, but if the velocity is changing there is acceleration present.
