a=F/m

a=acceleration

F=Force

m=mass

Greater the force applied greater would be the acceleration.If force is constant then for a particular mass the acceleration(rate of change of velocity) would remain constant.Right?

Now, let us say I press down the accelerator of my car.I keep the accelerator at a constant level , i.e. after presing the accelerator wioth my foot to a certain distance down, I neither raise my foot above or below.Then, in such a case,

Am I not maintaining a constant force?

Should not the acceleration remain constant?

i.e. should not the velocity vary uniformly(linearly)?

But the needle of the spedometer of the car shows no change in speed in such a case?

But the force is constant as I keep the accelerator at a constant level , i.e. after presing the accelerator wioth my foot to a certain distance down, I neither raise my foot above or below.

Plz. help!!!
