 P: 3 I want to know the comparison between a body in motion with constant velocity and accelerated motion? Like a body when it is motion with constant velocity its velocity is constant(v =constant) and acceleration (a=0)...??? and when a body is in accelerated motion its velocity will be constant(v =constant) and acceleration is also constant (a =constant) or acceleration has some value. Please elaborate to make me clearer as possible.!
 P: 217 You assume an accelerated object moves at constant speed. This is the contradiction that confuses you
 PF Patron P: 3,949 Acceleration means a change in Cartesian velocity.

 Quote by assuc and when a body is in accelerated motion its velocity will be constant(v =constant) and acceleration is also constant (a =constant) or acceleration has some value.
Since acceleration is the rate of change of velocity, you cannot have constant velocity with a non-zero acceleration.
