Is it possible.....

Is it possible for a body to have Non zero acceleration without having varying speed.

Comment a case.

Yes... If a body moves on a circular path with a uniform speed then due to the continuous change in the direction of the body, the acceleration is variable. Prakhar Lohumi · 2 years, 6 months ago

yes... When a charged particle enters a magnetic field perpendicular to it then it experiences a force q[\(v\times b\)] which is always perpendicular to the velocity and hence the charged particle follows a circular motion at a \( constant speed \) but at a varying velocity

In general whenever there is a force which is always perpendicular to the velocity vector then its component along the velocity will be zero and the speed of the particle remains constant even if it is experiencing Non Zero acceleration Ritesh Yadav · 2 years, 6 months ago
