Is a jogger moving at a constant speed accelerating?

no


How is it possible to be accelerateing and to stay at a constant speed?

its not, if ur accelerating ur not staying at a constant speed.


Can an object be moving but not accelerating?

Yes, it can. When an object has constant speed it has no acceleration.


How is it possible to be accelerating at a constant speed?

Since acceleration involves a change in velocity, and object might be accelerating even though its speed is constant.


If a car is traveling in a straight line at a constant speed is it accelerating?

No. 'Acceleration' means a change in speed or direction over time. If the car is moving at a constant speed in a constant direction, then it isn't accelerating.


Is it possible to be accelerating and traveling at a constant speed?

Yes. You can travel in a circle at constant speed, but you would still be accelerating because your direction would be changing constantly.


How can you be accelerating and traveling at a constant speed?

You can be accelerating and traveling at a constant speed if you change directions.


Can a body have constant speed and still be accelerating give example?

Yes. The simplest example is an object moving at a constant speed in a circle.


A horse is moving a constant speed of 8ms is the horse accelerating?

A constant speed means that the horse is neither accelerating nor decelearating Speed is a scalar which means it has a magnitude but no direction, while acceleration is a vector so it has both a magnitude and a direction. As the magnitude of the speed remains constant, the speed is constant but since the direction the horse travels in changes that horse is in fact accelerating.


If the net force on an object is zero then the object is?

Not accelerating. It could be stationary or moving at a constant speed.


Are you accelerating if you are traveling in a constant direction with constant speed and explain?

If you are traveling in a constant direction with constant speed there are no changes in velocity, so you are not accelerating.


A horse on a carousel that is moving at a constant speed is accelerating because?

"Acceleration" means either speed or direction or both are changing. If direction is changing, then there is acceleration, even if speed is constant.
