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.

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.


Are you accelerating if you are traveling at a constant speed with changing direction and Explain?

If you are traveling at a constant speed with changing direction there is a change in velocity, so you are accelerating.


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

If you are traveling in a constant direction with changing speed there is a change in velocity, so you are accelerating.


What is light's acceleration if its traveling at a constant speed of 300000 km s?

It has no acceleration. The definition of acceleration is the change in velocity over time, so if it is traveling at a constant speed, it has no acceleration. Also, the speed of light is a constant, which means it does not change.


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.


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.


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.


Does a car traveling along a curved path at constant speed have a constant momentum?

No, the magnitude will be constant, but the direction of the momentum will change to reflect the direction of the velocity.


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


Does a car traveling 20 mph on a curved exit ramp have a constant velocity?

No it does not because once you change direction you do not have a constant speed.


What is the acceleration of an object traveling at a constant velocity?

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


Can a bus change direction of its velocity when traveling with constant acceleration?

Yes, if the acceleration is not colinear with the existing velocity.


If the speed of an object does not change the object is traveling at a?

. . . constant speed, although its velocity may easily be changing.


Traveling without changing speed?

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.


A situation in which you can accelerate even though you speed does not change?

"Acceleration" means a change of speed or direction of motion, or both.If you change direction ... like turning a corner ... then there is acceleration,even though your speed is constant.Anything traveling on a circular track, even at a constant speed, has constantacceleration.

Can your body sense constant velocity and explain?

Your body cannot sense constant velocity. For example, you cannot sense that the earth is turning nor can you sense that the earth is orbiting around the sun. And, if you are in a vehicle that is traveling with a constant velocity, you cannot sense that you are moving unless your eyes sense a change in position.


How can you accelerate even if your speed does not change?

A change in the vector or direction that you are traveling is considered an acceleration; even if you don't change speed. This would be the case for going around in a merry-go-round, e.g. You are accelerating (changing direction), but the speed is constant (velocity is changing).


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?

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.


In what situations are acceleration zero?

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.
