constant velocity means no acceleration. An object can be moving at constant speed, like a satellite in orbit, but its velocity is changing because direction is changing

What does costant mean in science?

constant means it is not vary or can't be changed

A number without a variable or a number by itself is called a.?

Constant? not positive

What are all the terms in the expression MN plus m plus 5 and which is a constant?

MN m and 5 are the terms. 5 is the costant

Can an object reverse its direction of travel while maintaining a costant acceleration?

I Don't Believe so, i think once direction of travel is reversed it contradicts the definition of acceleration. technically i suppose this could be true, If a body was moving due east with an acceleration of 2m/s^2 , and if it could stop literally instantly without deceleration and immediately set off again due west with an acceleration of 2m/s^2 technically it would hav maintained constant acceleration but i think there is a moment there as it changes direction where it can not be constant. tbh , thinking about it unless the change was absolutely instantaneous which I'm relatively sure is impossible, it would be necessary for there to be some flux in the acceleration. so in conclusion, NO

What is costant and control?

something in an experiment.

How many particles in 2 moles of hydrogen molecule?

The number of molecules in a mole of any element is a costant, Avogadro's constant. Avodadro's constant = 6.02214129×1023. 2 moles of any element will always contain twice Avogadro's constant or 1.204 428 258×1024 molecules.

Why are isocost lines straight lines?

because the prices are costant

If you travel at a constant speed and the distance you travel varies directly with your travel timeSuppose in 1.5 hours you can walk 5 miles What is the costant of variation and how did you find this?

You divide the number of miles traveled by the number of hours and the result - the constant of variation - is 3.66 (recurring) miles per hour.

HOW does speed increase MASS?

Mass is costant and can not be altered. It represents quantity of matter in an object.
