Uniform Velocity = ZERO Acceleration !!

Non Uniform Velocity = Non ZERO Acceleration ! That is acceleration can be either positive or negative.
If velocity changes, that is either direction or magnitude or both then there is some acceleration. Other wise not, if velocity is same...

Non Uniform velocity is velocity which is changing time to time. (i.e., change of direction or speed or both)

Acceleration is rate of change of velocity (i.e., this is the measure of change of direction or speed or both for a particular time interval)

In other words, an object with an acceleration can be said to be having non-uniform velocity.
But an object with non-uniform velocity might be having uniform acceleration (if the rate of change is uniform) or non-uniform acceleration (deceleration if the change is negative).

let me know if this is clear or you need further detail..

Since when 8-9th standard kids need to know about acceleration n stuff? (other than basic laws of kinematics)

And yeah, acceleration cannot take place if velocity is uniform. Accl itself rate of change of velocity. (when you learn calculus you'll be taught that differentiating velocity with respect to time is acclrtn.)

If velocity is uniform, (ie. rate of change is 0) then no acceleration.

lolz, I remember some students in my class fighting with the teacher over marks for the very same question when I was in Class IX.

I'll advise you to rather not make an assumption of being at that level yet.

They have ze internets.

I second ico...
Aspire, the JEE is far too tough even for profs to crack completely (they can, but not immediately)..I wonder who'll be pwned after a year's time

Dont take my statement the wrong way, just that I dont find your boast amusing
