Problem 5E

Light travels in a straight line at a constant speed of 300,000 km/s. What is the acceleration of light?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution: Light’s acceleration is zero. Since it travels in a straight line, its direction does not change. The light travels at a constant speed, so the speed never changes, either. There is no acceleration because it’s not turning and it’s going at a constant speed. Acceleration = 0 m/s . 2
