Consider an object on a straight-line path undergoing constant acceleration. Can you get the object to change direction while still experiencing constant acceleration?

  • Physics -

    Yes to both questions.
    A dropped object accelerates in a straight line.
    An object following a circular path can have constant acceleration magnitude while changing directions.

    (The acceleration vector will be changing however, in the latter case.)
