Chapter 3, Question 9 Question Problem Even if the speed is constant, the velocity can change due to change in direction, like in the case of circular motion. Velocity has magnitude as well as direction. If either of these changes, the velocity also changes. In the case of circular motion, the magnitude may remain unchanged, but the direction keeps changing because of the circular path. Since the velocity changes, there is an acceleration

Thus, a particle with constant speed can be accelerating. However, there will be no acceleration if the particle moves with constant velocity. [2/4/2008 3:59:56 PM]...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
