There is no evidence that such a thing as "telekinesis" even exists, so you can't train it, let alone "accelerate" such a training.

Why do you consider a moving object to accelerate even when it slows down or chnges direction without changing speeed?

Because that's the definition of "accelerate". "Accelerate" doesn't mean "speed up", although that's how everybody who rides in a car uses the word. "Accelerate" means "change the speed or the direction of motion, or both".

Is the force needed to accelerate a car greater than the force needed to accelerate a bicycle to the same velocity?

Force is directly proportional to mass. Therefore, even both the car and bicycle are being accelerated to the same velocity, accelerating a car would require more force since it has a greater mass.

By not changing their speed. Technically, this means also not changing their velocity, which includes direction. So, you don't accelerate if you skate in a straight line at a constant speed. Otherwise, you are accelerating, even if your speed does not change.

How long would it take to travel to earth if you are 3300 trillion miles away from earth and travelling at 20000 miles per second?

How can you accelerate even if your speed does not change?

A change in the vector or direction that you are traveling is considered an acceleration; even if you don't change speed. This would be the case for going around in a merry-go-round, e.g. You are accelerating (changing direction), but the speed is constant (velocity is changing).

Is it true that if you dropped a penny off the Empire State Building it would kill somebody if it hit their head?

No, a penny falling from the Empire State Building cannot kill a pedestrian. It is unlikely to even penetrate the skin of a pedestrian.When an object falls to earth it gains speed. It eventually gains so much speed that it doesn't accelerate anymore, this is called Terminal Velocity.If a human were to jump off a plane he would accelerate to his terminal velocity. If you take the mass of an average grown human, his terminal velocity would be about 100 something miles per hour. But the mass of a penny is only about 1 gram, so its terminal velocity would only be about 56mph. That means that the penny would accelerate to this speed and then it won't accelerate any more and it will maintain this current speed.You also have to take into consideration that on a building as high as the empire state building wind rushes up the sides so your measly little penny would simply be blown away.In the slim chance that it would hit a pedestrian, it would more than likely sting but he would be able to walk away and live another day. It is unlikely that the penny would even penetrate the skin of the human.Even though the urban legend might not be true, it's really not recommended that you try it out yourself. The Empire State Building authorities have always insisted that nobody has ever dropped such an item from the top of the building, although this cannot be confirmed.

How fast would you have to drive to go 300 miles?

You could drive at any speed you're comfortable with, and cover 300 miles. The only differencewould be the length of time it would take you to cover the distance.For example:If you drive at 60 miles per hour, you would cover 300 miles in 5 hours.If you drive at 100 mph, you would cover 300 miles in 3 hours.If you drive at 20 mph, you would cover 300 miles in 15 hours.You don't even have to drive. You could walk, at 3 miles an hour, and cover the distance in 100 hours.
