Textbook Problem

Which of the following objects can’t be accelerating? (a) An object moving with a constant speed; (b) an object moving with a constant velocity; or (c) an object moving along a curve.

To determine
To find the objects that are not accelerating.

Explanation

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. For a body with constant or zero velocity, the acceleration is zero. For an object to have acceleration, the object must have a changing velocity. The change in velocity can be a change in its magnitude, or change in its direction, or both.

Conclusion:

Since, the object is moving with constant velocity, there is no change in its magnitude or direction. As there is no change, the object is not accelerating...
