An object in uniform circular motion moves at a constant speed around a circle with a fixed radius. Why is the object said to be accelerating though it has a constant speed?

  • Physics -

    An acceleration is defined as the change of velocity per unit time. Since the velocity changes with time even the speed is constant, so there is an acceleration.
