A body moving with constant speed in a circular path has acceleration changing at every point.

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

Constant speed has no acceleration, whereas changing speed does.

Unless the train is in a curve, you cannot have constant speed and constant acceleration. You either have constant speed and zero acceleration, or you have changing speed and constant acceleration. Please restate the question.

Changing at a constant rate equal to acceleration.

Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity. When velocity is constant, it is NOT CHANGING so acceleration is negligible or ZERO or non-existent.

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

It is constant in magnitude. It is changing in direction.

No it cannot. It is either one or the other. For constant velocity, acceleration must be 0, meaning there is no acceleration happening here. If there is constant acceleration, then the velocity is constantly changing.

Unless the object is changing its direction, it is not accelerating. Constant velocity implies that speed and direction are constant, and for acceleration to occur, either speed, direction, or both values must be changing.

"Acceleration" means either speed or direction or both are changing. If direction is changing, then there is acceleration, even if speed is constant.

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

Acceleration is the change in velocity. Velocity is the change in speed or direction. Therefore, acceleration is changing the change in speed or direction. So if you are going at 50mph and then you are going at 55mph and then at 60mph, your acceleration is constant at 5 mph. if the change in accleartion is changing, then it is not constant. If you turn dirctions even while you move at a constant velocity, you are accelerating.

No. The velocity and acceleration are not zero because the direction is changing, thus the velocity and acceleration is changing.

Acceleration means any change in either speed or direction of motion.If speed remains constant, there may still be acceleration present if thedirection of the motion is changing.If the rate at which speed and/or direction are changing remains constant,then the acceleration is constant

This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.This object is changing its position, its velocity, and its acceleration.

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.

If he is moving at a constant speed and not changing direction, then acceleration is zero.

Yes. Changing the direction of motion is also defined as an acceleration, even if the speed remains constant.

An object changing its velocity by 10 m/s in each consecutive second is known asconstant acceleration since the velocity is changing by a constant amount each second. Although an object with a constant acceleration should not be confused with an object with a constant velocity.

The magnitude of the velocity will be constant however the direction will be constantly changing. The acceleration will remain constant towards the centre of the circle

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.

No it is not because its direction is constantly changing. It is not a constant force. Force has direction as well as magintude and while it magnitude is constant its direction is not.

Yes. Zero acceleration means you are not changing your speed (speed up or slow down) or changing direction. Zero acceleration is a constant speed in a linear direction. A speed implies you are moving.

It can Accelerate by changing it direction as acceleration eing a vector is dependant on the direction so by changing its direction one can accelrate it keeping the speed constant.
