Correct Answer - Option 4 : In Uniform Circular Motion the velocity of body remains constant

The correct answer is In Uniform Circular Motion the velocity of the body remains constant.

  • In Uniform Circular Motion the velocity of a body remains constant is the incorrect option for uniform circular motion.

  • ​Uniform circular motion can be described as the motion of an object in a circle at a constant speed.
  • As an object moves in a circle, it is constantly changing its direction.
  • Although the speed of the body remains the same the velocity is changing due to the change in the direction.
  • An object moving in a circle is accelerating.
  • Accelerating objects are objects which are changing their velocity either the speed (magnitude of the velocity vector) or the direction.
  • An object undergoing uniform circular motion is moving at a constant speed.
  • Nonetheless, it is accelerating due to its change in direction.
