When acceleration is zero then velocity of object can be zero or constant. The body continues to move with its velocity throughout. For e.g if a train is at rest then acceleration is zero and velocity remains zero. But when train moves with uniform velocity then also acceleration is zero and velocity remains constant.

When velocity is zero, acceleration can be either zero or non zero. A standing train is an example of zero velocity with zero acceleration. However acceleration can also be non zero. Consider a ball thrown upwards. The ball experiences acceleration due to gravity at all time, but at highest point its velocity becomes zero.

Hence a ball at its highest position is an example of zero velocity and non zero acceleration.

- Formula to find distance travelled by an uniformly accelerated body is
- The distance x covered by a body moving in a straight line in time t is given by the relation- 2x²+3x=t If v is the velocity of body at a certain instance of time, find it's acceleration.
- eg. v = 2x ; assume t = 0 ; x = 2 m ; find a(t)?
- Define instantaneous acceleration.
- The velocity of the particle is given by v = 4t
^{2}+ 7 cm/s. Find the velocity of the particle during the time interval t_{1}= 2s and t_{2}= 4s also find the average acceleration during the same interval of time. - The displacement of a particle along x-axis is given by x = 4 + 6t + 5t
^{2}. Obtain its velocity and acceleration at t = 2s. - What does the slope of a line on velocity-time graph reveals about the acceleration of the object?
- Give any three information about the motion of an object with help of given figure.
- What does this graph indicate about the motion of an object?
- A particle starts with an initial velocity 2 m/s along the positive x direction and it accelerates uniformly at the rate 1m/s
^{2}. Find the following: (a) Distance traveled by it in the first two seconds (b) How much time it take to reach the velocity of 5 m/s (c) How much distance will it cover in reaching the velocity 5 m/s
