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.
