What is the scientific definition of constant speed?

That means that the speed doesn't change.


What is a constant?

A statically defined term. Pi, for instance, is a constant, as it has a single definition. The speed of light is also a constant.


How is it possible to feel acceleration when the speed is constant?

Acceleration by definition is a change in speed, direction, or both. If the speed is constant, the direction could still be changing. You can feel a change in direction, therefore you can feel acceleration even if the speed is constant.


Is it possible for a body to have acceleration if the speed is constant?

Yes. Acceleration by definition is a change in speed, direction, or both. If the speed is constant, the direction could still be changing. You can feel a change in direction, therefore you can feel acceleration even if the speed is constant.


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 accelerate 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.


What is the acceleration of an object that moves at constant velocity?

'Constant velocity' means constant speed in a straight line.That's also a good definition of zeroacceleration.


What is the definition of the constant of variation?

The definition 4 constant of variation is: the constant factor in the definition of the function.


Can you go around a curve with constant velocity?

No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.


When do you consider a body moving at a constant velocity?

When it's moving in a straight line at a constant speed. And it has nothing to do with my judgment or opinion. That's the definition.



Definition for speed vs time graph?

Speed Vs. Time Graph : Can show whether an object is speeding up, slowing down, or moving at a constant speed.


What is the definition of zero acceleration?

Zero rate of change of velocity. Straight-line motion at a constant speed.


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.


What is the different between constant velocity and constant speed?

constant velocity is when you maintain speed and direction, this usually is in a straight line, and constant speed means that your speed is always constant at all times.


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

No. The definition of acceleration is a change in velocity, i.e. speed and/or direction. So constant velocity means zero acceleration.

Can you use average speed to calculate the speed of an object that is moving at a constant speed?

Yes. If an object is moving at a constant speed the average speed and the constant speed are the same.


Why the speed of an object is constant while the velocity is not?

This is not always the case. But if an object moves in a circle, at constant speed, its velocity will change. Velocity is a vector - consisting of the magnitude (the speed), and a direction. So by definition, if the direction changes, the velocity changes - you have a different vector.


How do you find constant speed?

You didn't specify what data is given. In general, for constant speed, the following formula is important (just use the definition of speed): speed = distance / time; or distance = speed x time. If distance is in km and time in hours, speed will be in km/hour; if distance is in meters and time in seconds, speed will be in meters/second.


How do constant speed and changing speed differ?

Constant speed has no acceleration, whereas changing speed does.


Why constant is used?

Constant is the speed of light and as the speed of light cannot change it is 'constant'


Can an object have constant velocity and but variable speed?

No. Velocity has two parts, speed and direction A constant velocity means that both the speed and the direction must be constant. So a constant velocity must have a constant speed.


Is the speed of light constant?

The speed of light in a vacuum is constant.
