Question

can a body have constant acceleration but zero velocity

Open in App
Solution

When an object is thrown upwards, then at the maximum height, velocity of body is zero at that instant but it has acceleration due to gravity.

So, at the highest point for a body thrown upwards, velocity is zero and acceleration is equal to g (9.8 ms^-2) in downward direction.
