What happens to the velocity if the acceleration is constant?

the velocity increases at a constant rate


Is it possible to have an acceleration with constant velocity?

No, the definition of acceleration is the increase change in velocity over time. An acceleration can also be a decrease in velocity over time. Constant velocity refers to an object that maintains the same velocity as time progresses. If the object has an acceleration, its velocity will not remain constant. In the case of rotational velocity there is a constant internal acceleration that has the magnitude v2/r


Does a stationary object have a constant velocity?

Yes, it is constant at zero. I.e. there is no acceleration so velocity must be constant


What is the acceleration of a jumbo jet cruising at constant velocity of 1613.5 km h when the thrusting force of its engines is a constant 112750 N?

If the velocity is constant, then the acceleration is zero.


What is the formula for acceleration?

a=dv/dt. By definition, acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. In mathematical notation, it is given as the formula stated above. Two special cases: 1. When acceleration is constant: The rate of change is a constant. Therefore, it can be calculated by: a=(vf - vi) / t where a is acceleration vf is final velocity vi is initial velocity and t is time taken 2. When velocity is constant: Velocity is not changing. The rate of change of velocity is zero. Acceleration has to be zero. * * * * * Note that velocity and acceleration are both VECTORS. Therefore, an object going round in a circle, at CONSTANT speed, has velocity and acceleration that are changing all the time - because the direction of motion is changing.

What is your acceleration if you have a constant velocity?

If your velocity is constant, then your acceleration is zero.


How do you find final velocity when you have constant acceleration constant velocity and time?

If you have constant acceleration, then you can't have constant velocity. (Unless the acceleration is constantly zero.)Final velocity = [initial velocity] + [ (acceleration) x (time) ]


When a body has velocity no constant has acceleration or no?

Yes. If a body has a constant velocity there is no acceleration, but if the velocity is changing there is acceleration present.


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

Acceleration is change of velocity. If velocity is constant ... "no change" ... then acceleration is zero.


If an object has constant velocity what is its acceleration?

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. Constant velocity means zero acceleration.


What is acceleration of a rain drop that falls at a constant velocity?

If the velocity is constant then there is no acceleration. The acceleration is zero.


What is the acceleration of a rain drop that falls at a constant velocity?

If the velocity is constant then there is no acceleration. The acceleration is zero.


An object with constant velocity has positive acceleration?

An object with constant velocity has no acceleration.


Why when velocity is constant but acceleration is not constant?

That can't happen. If there is any acceleration at all, then velocity is not constant.


If an object is moving with constant velocity what do you know about it's acceleration?

"Acceleration" means change of velocity. If velocity is constant, then acceleration is zero.


Is it possible for a body to have acceleration when moving constant speed and constant velocity?
