Well, technically yes, and we even know the magnitude of the constant acceleration.

If velocity is constant, that tells you that acceleration is zero, which sounds like

a constant to us.

### What is Motion without acceleration?

Such and object is said to be in equilibrium. No acceleration and no force.

### Can a body in equilibrium if it is in motion?

It can be in equilibrium if in constant motion (constant velocity) as no forces are acting on it (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.

### How is velocity of zero different from an accerlation at zero?

Acceleration is changing velocity. Zero velocity means no motion. Zero acceleration means constant, unchanging motion.

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

A motion with a constant speed will always be moving the same speed A motion with a constant acceleration will constantly be gaining speed, and does not remain moving at the same speed.

### What is the Difference between Uniform motion and uniform acceleration?

"Uniform motion" means constant velocity ... constant speed in a straight line. "Acceleration" means any change in velocity ... speed or direction. So 'uniform motion' means zero acceleration.

### Can a body move with a constant velocity in an accelerated motion?

No. The definition of acceleration is change in velocity.

### What is the definition of motion graph?

Constant acceleration motion can be characterized by motion equations and by motion graphs. The graphs of distance, velocity and acceleration as functions.

### Is it possible that the velocity of a body changes and its acceleration remains constant?

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.

### The velocity of a body was noted to be constant during five minutes of its motion What was its acceleration during this interval?

Acceleration means speeding up or slowing down, a change in velocity. Since the velocity was constant, the acceleration was. 0

### What are two ways in which an object can have constant velocity uniform motion?

Objects moving in uniform circular motion will have a constant speed, and two objects with the same acceleration have a constant velocity.

### Can an object acceleration if its velocity is constant?

No. It is a matter of definition. Acceleration is defined as a change of velocity. Technically, one must distinguish between velocity and speed. Velocity is a vector and includes the information about the magnitude (speed)and direction. One can have a constant speed and an acceleration (as in circular motion) but, by definition, constant velocity means zero acceleration.
