If a body moves in such a way that its velocity increases by equal amount in equal intervals of time, it is said to be moving with

[A]. a uniform retardation
[B]. a uniform acceleration
[C]. a variable acceleration
[D]. a variable retardation
[E]. none of these.

Answer: Option C

Niranjan Hegde said: (Sep 24, 2014)  
As the velocity increases at an equal quantity in equal intervals acceleration remains constant (i.e v/t).

So answer is B.

Sudip Manna said: (Feb 22, 2015)  
Velocity increases in equal interval of time. So it has to be a uniform acceleration.

Chima said: (Jul 3, 2015)  
A uniform increase in velocity with time implies that the acceleration also increases with time. An increase in acceleration with time is called "uniform acceleration".

R Verman said: (Apr 5, 2016)  
Velocity increase uniformly with respect of time, so answer should be B.

Ayushman said: (Jun 1, 2016)  
The answer should be uniform accleration.

Anonymous said: (Jul 13, 2016)  
The answer should be B.

Utsav Manandhar said: (Jul 20, 2016)  
The answer should be uniform accleration.

Bosco said: (Jul 27, 2016)  
Yes. It's only variable if there is a change of velocity and time at different intervals.

Usha said: (Nov 11, 2016)  
It is a Uniform acceleration.

Nitesh Jayswal said: (Dec 15, 2016)  
As velocity is directly proportion to acceleration. So it must be uniform acceleration.

Amar Srivastava said: (Jan 16, 2017)  
Answer must be option B.

Blch said: (Feb 23, 2017)  
Velocity is increasing in equal interval of time so it's uniformly accelerating.

And I think it is B.

Shail said: (Mar 7, 2017)  
Uniform acceleration is a correct answer.

Jason said: (May 3, 2017)  
I was under the impression that if the velocity was increased by equal amounts at equal time intervals it is called "constant" velocity. Therefore; the answer should be E.

Abhinandan said: (May 12, 2017)  
Change in velocity is acceleration. Here the change in velocity is by an equal amount which shows uniform velocity change. Hence change velocity that is acceleration is Uniform. So, the answer is B.

Ashwini Halyal said: (Jun 21, 2017)  
A body is said to have a uniform acceleration if it travels in a straight line and its velocity increases by equal amounts in equal intervals of time.

So, Option B is correct.

Rashmi Ranjan said: (Oct 19, 2017)  
The correct Answer is B.

Subha Annadurai said: (Oct 21, 2017)  
Yeah, the Answer is uniform acceleration.

Vrinda said: (Nov 28, 2017)  
B is the Correct option. I agree.

M.P.Keshary said: (Dec 7, 2017)  
B is the correct answer.

Vidyashri Hiremath said: (Mar 30, 2018)  
Uniform Acceleration = A body is said to be moving h uniform acceleration if its velocity changes by equal amounts in equal intervals of time.

Variable Acceleration = A body is said to be moving with variable acceleration if its velocity changes by unequal amount in equal intervals of time.

Amna said: (Sep 15, 2018)  
Yes, it is uniform acceleration.

Syed Khaleeq Ahmad said: (Nov 3, 2018)  
The answer should be an uniform acceleration.

Vidhya said: (Feb 10, 2019)  
Velocity increases or decreases with equal amount in a equal interval of time then its acceleration is uniform. So, Option B is Correct.

Nami said: (Jan 11, 2020)  
It is a Uniform acceleration.

Meet said: (May 26, 2020)  
Here velocity is increased by the time but the time interval is same so acceleration is variable and the given answer is right.

Mahesh said: (Aug 23, 2020)  
Please explain the right answer.

Susheel Kumar said: (Sep 1, 2021)  
The correct option will be uniform acceleration. If it is said that velocity change increases with an equal amount in equal interval time then it is variable acceleration. But in the question, it says the only velocity.

Javed said: (Sep 12, 2021)  
Since the velocity increases with time but the interval remains constant so the given answer is correct.

Since the velocity increases with time but the interval remains constant so the given answer is correct.
