An object travels 8 m in the 1st second of travel, 8 m again in the 2nd second of travel, and 8 m again during the 3rd second of travel. its acceleration in meters per second per second is?

Would the answer to this question be 0?

I'm not positive, but wouldn't the acceleration be 8 m/s?

zero. It is going constant speed.
