## What does it mean if acceleration is constant?

**Sometimes an accelerating object will change its velocity by the same amount each second. This is referred to as a constant acceleration since the velocity is changing by a constant amount each second.**

## What is the acceleration of an object with a constant velocity?

Explanation: If an object is moving with a constant velocity, then by definition it has **zero acceleration. The total work done on the object is thus 0 (that’s not to say that there isn’t work done by individual forces on the object, but the sum is 0 ).**

## What does it mean when acceleration is constant?

**Sometimes an accelerating object will change its velocity by the same amount each second.This is referred to as a constant acceleration since the velocity is changing by a constant amount each second. An object with a constant acceleration should not be confused with an object with a constant velocity.**

## What does it mean when the acceleration is not constant?

Whenever there is a change in velocity, either due to a change in speed or a change in direction, there will be non-zero acceleration. Acceleration is not constant **if the net force is not constant**

## What is the speed if the acceleration is constant?

If acceleration is constant, then **the velocity will change by a constant amount every second, in other words: velocity is NOT constant.**

## Does constant acceleration mean constant velocity?

Traveling with a constant velocity means you’**re going at the same speed in the same direction continuously. If you travel with a constant acceleration, your velocity is always changing, but it’s changing by a consistent amount each second.**
