Acceleration = 0 because the car is moving at a STEADY velocity. It is neither speeding up, nor slowing down.

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

Is it possible for a body to have acceleration when moving with constant velocity explain?

the question is very a body does not have acceleration when it is moving with constant velocity ,because a body posses acceleration when its velocity is not remain conserved or constant.yes if a body have constant speed it may have acceleration but not in case of constant velocity.

Explain the circumstances when the acceleration and the velocity of car are parallel?

when velocity of a car is increasing then velocity and acceleration are parallel to each other.

Explain the circumstences in which the velocity accelerationof a body are parallel?

Explain circumstances, in which the velocity acceleration of a body is parallel?

Explain the relationship between velocity and acceleration?

Acceleration is the change in velocity over a period of time. a = v/t

When the body moves with uniform velocity its acceleration is?

When the body moves with uniform velocity its acceleration is 0. Pls explain.

Can you have a zero acceleration but non zero velocity explain it with help of a graph?

Yes, you can. Zero acceleration simply means there is no CHANGE in velocity. It doesn't mean there is no velocity.

If an object has zero acceleration and does that mean its velocity is zero and Explain?

If an object has zero acceleration, its velocity doesn't have to be zero. Acceleration is a measure of the change in velocity over time. Zero acceleration means there is no change in velocity over time, namely constant velocity. Constant velocity can be any velocity (including zero velocity or "at rest"), so the object's velocity doesn't have to be zero to have zero acceleration.

Can a moving body have velocity and acceleration in opposite directions explain with in example?

Of course. A car with brakes applied and slowing down has forward velocity and rearward acceleration.

Explain the circumstances in which the velocity and acceleration of the body is parallel?

the acceleration of the car is increasind.Then the v and a are parallel to each other.

Can a body have acceleration without velocity explain?

Yes, a body can have aceleration without velocity. Consider sin x the position; cos x is the velocity and -sin x is the acceleration. Here the acceleration negative when x=90 degrees and the velocity is zero at 90 degrees.

Can object travilling at constant speed have an acceleration Explain?

Yes. Acceleration is defined as a change in velocity, and velocity is a measure of speed AND direction. Maintaining a constant speed while rounding a corner is an example of acceleration.

Explain why circular motion includes continuous acceleration even when the speed does not change?

Acceleration involves a change in velocity. In the case you mention, the speed doesn't change, but the velocity does. The term "velocity" includes the direction of the movement, and the direction does change.
