# What is a constant nonzero acceleration?

## What is a constant nonzero acceleration?

Acceleration is inherently a vector quantity, and an object will have non-zero acceleration if its speed and/or direction is changing.

What is the graph of constant acceleration?

When acceleration is constant, the acceleration-time curve is a horizontal line.

### What does 0 acceleration look like on a graph?

If the acceleration is zero, then the slope is zero (i.e., a horizontal line). If the acceleration is positive, then the slope is positive (i.e., an upward sloping line). If the acceleration is negative, then the slope is negative (i.e., a downward sloping line).

Can you have constant and nonzero acceleration?

When a body moves the instant when t=0 then it has zero velocity but some acceleration is there. Objects moving with constant velocity have zero acceleration but non zero speed. So, the correct answer is “Option C”.

#### Is constant speed zero acceleration?

First, constant speed does not mean zero acceleration. An object could be going on a curved path at constant speed. The object has an acceleration. Zero acceleration means constant velocity.

What is a non zero constant?

A non zero constant polynomial is of the form. f(x) = c, where c can be any real number except for 0. For example f(x) = 9 is a non-zero constant polynomial.

## Which part of the graph shows zero acceleration?

Is constant acceleration 0?

So, although zero is a constant, zero acceleration is zero acceleration, not constant acceleration.

### Can you have zero acceleration and nonzero velocity explain using a graph?

If velocity is constant means not changing with time then slope of v-t graph will be zero and hence acceleration will also be zero.

Can you have constant nonzero acceleration and changing velocity?

C) an object has constant nonzero velocity and changing acceleration Not possible: velocity cannot be constant in the presence of a non-zero acceleration.

#### Can velocity be 0 and acceleration nonzero?

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity of an object with respect to the time over which this change occurs. It is possible to have a non-zero value of acceleration when the velocity of a body is zero.

Can there be a non-zero acceleration when the velocity is zero?

It is possible to have a non-zero value of acceleration when the velocity of a body is zero. This can happen when it goes in a particular direction, and a force which acts in a direction opposite to it, acts upon it.

## How can velocity be zero but not acceleration?

What we require is the rate of change of velocity.

• Acceleration is how much the velocity changes in unit time.
• If you have a relation of displacement (x) as a function of time (t)
• Then velocity as a function of time will be:
• V=dx/dt
• To find acceleration differentiate velocity again with respect to time
• => a=dV/dt
• => a=d²x/dt²
• Can velocity be zero while acceleration is not zero?

This acceleration is the gravitational acceleration. At that point the component of acceleration/gravitational acceleration works there. So, at the topmost point the velocity is zero but acceleration is not and has a finite value. Therefore, a body can have zero velocity and finite acceleration.

### What are some non examples of acceleration?

Gravity force.

• Magnetic force.
• Electric force.
• What is nonzero acceleration?

So nonzero acceleration means non-stop acceleration: velocity is always changing. In physics, special relativity pertains only to inertial reference frames, which are reference frames that do not accelerate. General relativity is more complicated, but it works for any reference frame.
