i realllyyyy need this for a presentation for physics. can someone please help me out?

(a) When moving in a circular path, a body must constantly change its direction towards the center of the circle. This requires a constant force that is perpendicular to the direction of motion.

(b) The direction that is always perpendicular to the equation of motion is the center of the circle.

(c) mass (m), velocity (V) and distance to the center of the circle (R)
