Can a body have constant speed and still be accelerating?
Yes, a body can have a constant speed and still be accelerating.
Acceleration can be either due to change in speed or due to direction of motion or both.
Consider an example of uniform circular motion. In a uniform circular motion, the body moves with a constant speed but we still say that it is accelerating due to the change in direction.
This acceleration is called centripetal acceleration and is given as
Where, v = constant speed
And r = radius of circle

There is an argument about uniform acceleration between Mr X and Mr Y. Mr X says “acceleration means that farther you go faster you go”. Mr Y says “acceleration means that longer you go the faster you go”. Whose statement is correct?Evergreen - Science

An object is dropped from rest at a height of 150 m and simultaneously another object is dropped from rest at a height 100 m. What is the difference in their heights after 2 s if both the objects drop with same accelerations? How does the difference in heights vary with time?NCERT Science - Exemplar

You are sitting in a stationary car. There is a helium balloon tied to its floor. You accelerate and obviously feel like you are being pushed backwards (against the direction of your accelerations). The balloon.All In One - Science
