Velocity is a vector, thus it has a direction. Therefore, you can change the velocity by changing direction. A great example of this is a ball on a string spinning at a constant speed, but it is continually changing direction, therefore, even though the speed is constant the velocity changes at every instant.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is an example of constant velocity with changing speed?

That isn't possible. You can have a constant speed and a changing velocity, but not the other way round.


Is it possible to have a changing velocity and a constant speed?

Yes it is possible to have a changing velocity at a constant speed. Velocity is defined as the rate of change of position therefore if the direction of the constant speed changes then that constitutes a changing velocity. For example driving in a circle means that the speed is constant but the direction changes as you drive :) Betlehem Semahge


Can a body have constant velocity but changing speed?

No, not at all possible. But constant speed with changing velocity is possible.


Does a body moving with constant speed have constant velocity?

No. A body can have constant speed but changing direction thus changing velocity. For example, an orbiting body may have a constant speed s=wr, but its direction is constantly changing as it follows the curve of its orbit.


Can a body have constant velocity when it has constant speed?

Of course. In fact, in order to have constant velocity, it must have constant speed.What you really want to know: Can a body have changing velocity when it has constant speed ?The answer to that one is also "yes", for example when it is moving in a circle, the speed is constant but the velocity is changing all the time (in direction).


Can an object have a constant speed and a varying velocity?

Yes. Velocity is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction. Speed is the magnitude of velocity. If speed is constant but the direction is changing, then the velocity is changing. An example is a car turning a corner without slowing down.


Can a car move with changing velocity while maintaining constant speed?

Constant speed around a curve is changing velocity.


If you are traveling around a curve at a constant speed of 30 km is the veiocity change?

Yes, the velocity is changing. Velocity is a quantity composed of the speed and the direction of motion. Constant velocity means: Constant speed, in a straight line. If the direction is changing, then the velocity is changing, even if the speed is constant.


If a ferris wheel is rotating at constant speed is it moving at a constant velocity?

No. Velocity combines speed and the direction of motion.Constant velocity is constant speed in a straight line.In circular motion, the velocity is always changing even if the speed is constant,because the direction is always changing.


Why achanging velocity cannot maintaining constant speed?

A changing velocity can maintain constant speed if the motion is circular. The constant change in direction is a change in velocity, even if the speed is constant.


Is it possible to have a constant velocity and a changing speed?

yes


Can an object have a constant spped and velocity at the same time?

Velocity is a vector quantity. That means it has direction and magnitude. Speed is a scalar quantity, it only has magnitude. It is possible to have constant speed and constant velocity but it is also possible to have constant speed but changing velocity if the object is changing direction.
