About one dimentional motion

If the velocity of a particle is nonzero, can its acceleration be zero?? give ny mathematical answer plz
Question asked by: golra00

Asked on: 09 Oct 2009

Yes the velocity of a particle can be nonzero whilst its velocity is nonzero.

For instance think of a car that is moving at 10mph but it is not accelerating. Here you have a clear situation where the speed is zero, but because the speed is steady (not increasing or decreasing) then it means that there is zero acceleration.
