Give Reasons for the Following:
Can a body move with constant acceleration but with zero velocity? If yes, why?
Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. In order to have non-zero acceleration, rate of change of velocity should be non-zero.
Yes, it is possible to have non-zero acceleration at zero velocity. But it is only possible for a moment. A moment is a brief period that cannot be measured.
Let us understand it by following two examples:
a) When we throw a ball in the air, it attains a maximum height and then comes down. At the maximum height velocity of the ball is zero, but a negative acceleration due to gravitation acts on it.
b) When we apply brakes on a moving car, the car stops and the velocity of the car is zero at that moment but acceleration (retardation) is not zero.

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
When you apply brakes to a car, in which direction is its acceleration?Evergreen - Science
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
