No, it is not possible for velocity to be constant while acceleration is not zero.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: What is Acceleration

The rate at which an object's velocity changes with respect to time is known as acceleration.

The item experiences acceleration whenever its velocity changes.

As a result, anytime the magnitude or direction of velocity changes, a non-zero value of acceleration is associated with it.

## Step 2: Constant velocity will give Zero acceleration

Acceleration is a vector quantity. Its direction and magnitude depend upon the velocity vector.

The direction of acceleration is the same as that of the change in velocity.

Hence if there is no change in velocity, there would not be acceleration. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
