Yes. Acceleration means either speed or direction is changing. If direction is changing,

then that's acceleration, even if speed is constant.

What is an example of an accelerating object but moves in a constant speed?

An accelerating object is one that is changing in either speed or direction. Thus any object that is turning is accelerating while maintaining a constant speed.


Can an object be moving but not accelerating?

Yes, it can. When an object has constant speed it has no acceleration.


Can an object be accelerating if its speed is constant?

In the case of circular motion - an object can have constant angular speed and experience constant linear acceleration.


An object cannot be accelerating if it has a constant speedtrue or false?

An object with a constant (vector)velocity is not accelerating. An object with a constand (scalar)speed can actually be accelerating, a car with a constant speed that passes around a corner is changing direction and is subjected to a lateral acceleration.


How is it possible to be accelerating at a constant speed?

Since acceleration involves a change in velocity, and object might be accelerating even though its speed is constant.


If a person is running straight west at a constant speed are they accelerating?

No. An object is accelerating if it is changing speed or direction of travel. Since the person in question is running at a constant speed in a straight line, they are not accelerating.


If an object is accelerating can its velocity be constant?

No. Acceleration is any change of velocity.But its speed can be constant.


Speed is usually not constant usually object has what type of speed?

Changing, varying or accelerating


If the net force on an object is zero then the object is?

Not accelerating. It could be stationary or moving at a constant speed.


How can you be accelerating and traveling at a constant speed?

You can be accelerating and traveling at a constant speed if you change directions.


Can a body have constant speed and still be accelerating give example?

Yes. The simplest example is an object moving at a constant speed in a circle.


Can an object with constant speed be accelerating?

Yes. 'Acceleration' means either speed or direction is changing. If direction is changing,then there is acceleration, even if speed is constant.
