That combination is called "projectile motion". In the absence of

air resistance, its shape is always a parabola. Wiki User

### Does the horizontal line on the velocity vs time graph indicate a constant and positive acceleration?

Ahorizontal line on a velocity vs time graph does not indicate any acceleration because there is no slope. Speed remains constant.

false

false

### What does the graph of acceleration vs. time look for something going a constant velocity?

a horizontal line

### What does the graph of acceleration vs. time look for something going constant velocity?

a horizontal line

### If an object is moving at a constant velocity what do you know about its acceleration?

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

### 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.

### Which of the velocity component of projectile changes and other remain constant why?

the horizontal component remain unchanged because there in no acceleration in horizontal direction

### What does the graph of accelaration vs.time look like for something going a constant velocity?

Constant velocity implies zero acceleration, so you would have a horizontal line, identical to the x-axis.

### 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.

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

No; acceleration means the velocity changes.No; acceleration means the velocity changes.No; acceleration means the velocity changes.No; acceleration means the velocity changes.
