No, it isn't possible. Velocity specifies both speed and direction; if velocity doesn't change, that means that neither the speed nor the direction change.

No. Velocity is speed and direction. If you change either variable, the velocity will no longer be constant.

No, because constant velocity means constant speed and constant direction

No. If the speed varies, the body accelerates, and velocity cannot be constant.

Velocity is a vector. A vector has a magnitude and a direction. The scalar or magnitude portion of velocity is speed. Velocity is a constant only when both the speed and direction are not varying. Hence, when the speed is changing, the velocity cannot be a constant.

No. Speed is the magnitude of the velocity. If either or both the speed and direction vary, the velocity is not constant.

Yes, the velocity of a constantly (or not constantly) accelerated object will vary. Velocity is distance per unit time with a vector. It's speed (distance per unit of time) in a given direction. Under constant acceleration, the velocity is changing at a constant rate. But the velocity is changing. It is varying. The object could be speeding up or it could be slowing down. Or it could be changing direction. Any of these change velocity. An object that is experiencing constant acceleration will have its velocity varying. Why wouldn't it have?

No, velocity is a vector quantity and measures both speed and direction. If the velocity of an object is constant then that would also mean the speed would stay constant.

No. Velocity is the combination of speed and direction. If it is constant, then both the speed and direction are constant. On the other hand, velocity can vary even is speed is constant, since the direction can change.

No. Circular motion can have constant speed but varying velocity. Constant speed means constant speed in any direction, like a car on cruise control turning a corner. Constant velocity means constant speed in a straight line. If the direction changes, that's considered a change in velocity.

Yes. In order for an object's velocity to be constant, its speed and direction of motion must both be constant. An object moving in a circle, for example, has varying velocity, even if its speed is constant. This situation is known as "uniform circular motion," and the acceleration in this case is called "centripetal [center-seeking] acceleration."

Yes. Velocity is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction. Speed is the magnitude of velocity. If speed is constant but the direction is changing, then the velocity is changing. An example is a car turning a corner without slowing down.

Yes, if you are going in a circle or otherwise changing direction.

Yes, velocity involves speed and direction. So if the direction and the speed change at a certain rate, the velocity could stay the same.

Yes. Velocity is rate (or speed) in a given direction. If you change your direction but not your rate (or speed) then you have changed your velocity without changing speed.

Yes. Velocity combines the descriptions of speed and direction. If the direction of motion is changing, like moving along a curve or bouncing off a wall, then the velocity is changing, even though the speed may be constant.

Of course, since velocity is a vector quantity and speed is a scalar quantity, velocity has something speed does not: direction. Thus, an object can travel at the same speed by has a changing direction of movement, and therefore a changing velocity. For instance, a ball on a string moving in a circle at the same speed is constantly changing its velocity, which results in its path of motion.Yes. Velocity is (speed and direction of motion). If direction changes, then velocitychanges, even if speed is constant.Examples:-- Car going around a curve at a constant speed has changing velocity.-- Anything traveling a circular path at a constant speed has changing velocity.

It means that acceleration is constant. This meaning that velocity is varying with respect to time, we see this by this formula (v - v(initial) ) / t (Time).

The variably of velocity can be increased or decreased by altering other factors. The removal or reduction of air resistance can result in higher velocity (if force is held constant). If force is increased velocity can also become higher. Reduction of mass and varying gear ratios can also correspond to higher velocity.

Mainly, when the velocity doesn't change. Also, in the case of varying velocity, the instantaneous velocity might, for a brief instant, be equal to the average velocity.

A constant voltage source supplies a constant voltage, and a varying current depending on the load. A constant current source supplies a constant current and a varying voltage depending on the load.

constant rate means that rate which is fixed and can not be changed. varying rate is that rate which is not fixed and can be change easily.

Generally it is a Yes. Instantaneous velocity is the exact velocity at a particular time in the course of the movement. However, average velocity is the average of all the instantaneous velocity over a period of time. It is also known as speed in everyday life. As a result, the movement of an object over a time period under varying velocity denotes a varying instantaneous velocity which could be different from the average velocity. It is however, possible that the instantaneous velocity equates to the average velocity at a certain point over the duration of movement. For example, a ball is traveling at instantaneous velocity of 99m/s at t=1s , 100m/s at t=2s and 101m/s at t=3s. the average velocity over the 3s period is hence 100m/s which coincides with the instantaneous speed at t=2s.

A cv joint (also known as a constant-velocity joint) allows drive shafts to transmit power at varying angles. They do this without too much increase in friction.
