Question and answer
can you go around a curve with zero acceleration
No,you cant go around a curve with no acceleration.To go around the curve, your velocity vector must change directions, which requires an accereration, i.e. [ no acceleration and you can only go in a straight line. with a consant acceleration it is possible as long as the acceleration is in the appropriate direction. ]

User: can you go around a curve with constant acceleration

Weegy: Given a curve, y = f(x), then slope m = velocity = dy/dx. acceleration (a) is a derivative of velocity, thus a=d'y/d'x = y''. Zero acceleration implies that the slope of the curve is a constant, a straight line. [ Therefore, when a=0, movement is not in a curve, but in a straight line. Constant acceleration implies that dy/dx is not a constant, and thus movement along some curve is possible when d'y/d'x is not equal to zero. ]

User: can you go around a curve with constant acceleration

Weegy: No, you can't do that. Any change of direction is an acceleration.

can you go around a curve with constant acceleration User: why you have to push harder on the pedals of a single speed to start it moving with a constant velocity
Weegy: Basically, as a body accelerates, the forces acting upon it are unbalanced. However, as one reaches uniform speed (constant speed) you are no longer accelerating, so the forces acting upon the bike are now balanced. [ Newton's second law of motion states that when something is moving, it will continue to move at the same velocity until another force is applied (inertia). Because of this, the bike will be moving "on its own" after you stop peddling, so there is less need to pedal. ] (More)
