The definition of acceleration is: Any change of velocity, that is, speed

or direction of motion.

If an object is undergoing constant acceleration, then the definition says

that its velocity must be changing.

Is it possible for a body to have an acceleration when moving with constant velocity?

No, when a body is moving with constant velocity then neither the magnitude nor the direction changes, and that's exactly the definition of zero acceleration.


Why is it that their is an acceleration when a car is moving?

There is only acceleration if the car's velocity changes. If it moves at a constant velocity, then there is no acceleration.


What is difference between an object moving with uniform acceleration and an object moving with a constant velocity?

If there is acceleration (uniform or otherwise, but non-zero acceleration), the velocity changes. Constant velocity means that the velocity does not change.


Why is the velocity 0 when your speed is constant?

It's not. If you speed is constant (but not zero), then your velocity won't be zero, either.You may be confusing this with the following: If your VELOCITY (not your speed) is constant, then your ACCELERATION is zero. Acceleration refers to how quickly velocity changes, so if velocity doesn't change at all, acceleration is zero.


When velocity changes by the same amount over each time period acceleration is?

Acceleration is constant.


Why is it that an object can accelerate while traveling at constant speed but not at constant velocity?

Acceleration means the velocity changes. Velocity is made up of speed and a direction, so if only the direction changes, the velocity still changes, and therefore there is acceleration. The typical example is moving around in a circle.


The velocity of an object moving in a straight line changes at a constant rate when the object is experiencing constant?

acceleration


Which describes an object's velocity that changes by the same amount each second?

Constant acceleration


What is the acceleration of a car that travels in a straight line at a constant speed of 80 km per hour?

if the velocity is constant, the acceleration is zero. The acceleration is the rate at which the velocity changes, so if it stays the same, the car isn't accelerating.


Is it possible to round a corner with constant velocity?

No. Since the direction changes, so will the velocity.
