*The acceleration of a body travelling at constant velocity.***MYTH: For a body travelling at constant velocity, the acceleration is also constant.**

**FACT: The acceleration is zero for a body moving with constant velocity.**

The velocity of a body is defined as the rate of change of displacement whereas the acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. If the body is moving with a constant velocity, then there will be no rate of change of velocity. Therefore the acceleration of the body remains zero.
