I don't think so. The first derivative of VELOCITY is acceleration (i.e.
integrate acceleration to get velocity as acceleration is the rate of change
of velocity) if my high school physics doesn't totally fail me right now.
This also means that if acceleration is zero, velocity simply is constant. And
in order to have velocity >0 you must have encountered some acceleration at
some point.
