If only a single nonzero force acts on an object, does the object accelerate relative to all inertial reference frames? Is it possible for such an object to have zero velocity in some inertial reference frame and not in another? If so, give a specific example.

    Yes to both questions. Example of zero relative velocity: a passenger inside a car moving at constant velocity.

    Thanks a lot
