Homework Help: Physics

Posted by sarah on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 5:12pm.

A student argues that as a satellite orbits the earth in a circular path, it moves with a constant velocity and therefore has no acceleration. The professor claims that the student is wrong since the satellite must have a centripetal acceleration as it moves in its circular orbit. What is wrong with the student's argument?
