1.Can an object reverse its direction of travel while maintaining a constant acceleration? If so, give an example. If not, explain why not.
2. If you were standing in a bus moving at constant velocity, would you have to lean in some special way to compensate for the bus's motion? EXPLAIN. WHat if the bus were at a constant acceleration?eXPLAIN.

    1. Yes
    example: throwing a ball up and catching it on the way down

    2. No

    Next part: yes, you would have to lean if the bus were accelerating, to keep yourself from tipping over due to the static friction force on your feet.
