If the velocity of a particle is zero, can its acceleration be nonzero? Explain.

Is it possible, how?

Yes. If you drop a doughnut from rest (v=0), then its acceleration is not zero. A common misconception is that immediately after the doughnut is released, both the velocity and acceleration are zero. If the acceleration were zero, then the velocity would not change, leaving the doughnut floating at rest in mid-air.

i would eat that doughnut instead of dropping it...and Yes...in case of simple pendulum velocity is zero at extreme position but acceleration is not
