Answer: yes velocity because velocity is traveling in the same direction at the same speed so yes it is traveling in a straight line

Can an object traveling at constant velocity have acceleration?

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


Is your speed is constant if you are traveling in a straight line with an acceleration of zero?

If your acceleration is zero, then yes, you are traveling at a constant speed. The path does not matter. Acceleration measures the change in velocity, so an acceleration of zero means that there is zero change in velocity and therefore the speed is constant.


If you are traveling around a curve at a constant speed of 30 km is the veiocity change?

Yes, the velocity is changing. Velocity is a quantity composed of the speed and the direction of motion. Constant velocity means: Constant speed, in a straight line. If the direction is changing, then the velocity is changing, even if the speed is constant.


Is it possible to accelerate while traveling at a constant velocity?

If you accelerate, your velocity isn't constant.


What is constant velocity in terms of physics?

Constant velocity means constant speed in a straight line.


What is the net force acting if your professor's car is traveling west with a constant velocity of 55 mi-hr west on a straight highway?

If the velocity of the object is constant, then the net force on it is zero.(Incidentally, if the velocity of the car is constant and not zero, then it must be ona straight highway. If the highway curved and the car's velocity didn't change, thenit would run off of the road.)


What does it mean when an object is traveling with a constant velocity?

It means that the velocity doesn't change over time. It's speed is always the same, and it moves in a straight line.


What are examples of constant velocity?

Imagine you are driving in your car on a straight, flat highway. Neglect curvature of the earth. You set the cruise control and stay in your lane without having to steer. Now you are traveling at a constant speed in a constant direction. This is an example of constant velocity.


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.


When a ball is traveling at a constant velocity of 50 ms and has been traveling for over 2 minutes what is the balls acceleration?

When something is traveling at a constant velocity it has no acceleration. In other words your answer is 0.


Can you be accelerating if you are traveling at constant speed?

Velocity is speed in a certain direction. You can keep speed the same, and if you change direction then you have changed velocity.


If A car moves at constant speed also moving at constant velocity?

Not necessarily. Constant velocity also means no change in direction.


Can it have zero acceleration and non zero velocity?

Yes this is possible, when the velocity is constant. When velocity is constant there is no change in velocity, if there is no change in velocity then is no acceraltion. e.g. : a car traveling at a constant speed of 40m/s


What is the acceleration of a ball that is traveling at a constant velocity of fifty miles and has been traveling for over 2 minutes?

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


What does constant velocity?

It means constant speed in a straight line.


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.


Why does a car traveling at constant speed can accelerate while a car at constant velocity connot?

The question is inherantly flawed. A car traveling at a constant speed cannot accelerate, if it could it's speed would not be constant. "Constant speed" means that speed is not increasing or decreasing but remain consistent over time. For example, if you cover 10 feet during each second, your speed is constant. "Constant velocity" implies constant speed, but it has an additional constraint: you can't change your direction. If you travel constantly at 10 feet per second in a straight line, then your speed is constant and your velocity is constant. But if you travel constantly at 10 feet per second in a wiggly line (or a circle, or anything not straight), then your speed is constant but your velocity is NOT constant. If you travel at a constant speed but change direction, velocity is changed. Or if you travel in the same direction but change the speed, velocity is changed. Average speed is is easier: distance/time So, your question should read: Why can a car traveling at an average speed accelerate, but a car traveling at constant speed cannot? Or Why am I asking the wrong questions?


What will happen to an object moving at constant velocity?

Such an object is traveling at a constant speed in a straight line. Nothing will happen to it until the forces acting on it become unbalanced, or it runs into something.


Is there an acceleration when an object traveling at constant velocity and why?

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


What accelerates while traveling at constant velocity?

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


Can an object have a constant speed and velocity at the same time?

Yes. An object moving in a straight line at constant speed has constant velocity.


In uniform circulation motion is the velocity constant?

No. The direction keeps changing. Constant velocity means constant speed in a straight line.


Compare velocity from acceleration?

Velocity is a constant traveling speed. Acceleration is increasing traveling speed (variation of speed over time)



What is the acceleration of a car that maintains a constant velocity of 100km per h for 10 seconds?

Acceleration is the time rate of change of velocity. If velocity is constant, then acceleration is zero. Note: "100 km per h for 10 seconds" is a constant speed, but not necessarily a constant velocity, since we're told nothing about the direction. If the car moves in a perfectly straight line during those 10 seconds, then its velocity is constant. If it makes a curve, then its velocity is not constant even though its speed is, and there is acceleration.
