acceleration is change in velocity.. and velocity constantly changes in circular motion, as the direction constantly changes.

This constant change in velocity causes the object to accelerate.

Is an object undergoing uniform circular motion accelerating?

Yes. Acceleration is the change in velocity, and velocity is a vector, which means it has direction. Because an object undergoing uniform circular motion is changing direction, it is changing velocity, and thus, accelerating.


Uniform circular motion occurs when an object is traveling with what speed in a circle?

As long as the object is moving in a circle at a constant speed, it is undergoing uniform circular motion.


Can an object be accelerating if its speed is constant?

In the case of circular motion - an object can have constant angular speed and experience constant linear acceleration.


Why is an object going in a circular motion constantly accelerating?

This is not strictly true; an object in orbit, going in a circular motion, at least from a human perspective, is not accelerating. However, any object going in a circular motion that is not orbiting another object is being contained in a circle artificially, either by a tether or by thrust, that would go in a straight line if no other force were acting on it, is experiencing "acceleration," which is not necessarily "going faster" as might be assumed.



Why is an object traveling in circular motion constantly changing?

An object traveling in circular motion is constantly changing because its 'direction' is constantly changing due to the circular motion. The speed may be unchanging say, 5 miles per hour but the direction may be going form East to North to West to South and then back to East, say in counter clockwise motion.


Uniform circular motion deals with objects moving with what speed in a circular path?

When an object is moving in a uniform circular motion while traveling in a circular path, this means it has a constant speed. When an object is moving in a circular path, this indicates it is constantly being pulled towards the center of the circle.


What is an example of an object that is accelerating but is traveling at a constant speed?

Acceleration is a change in velocity over time. Velocity has both speed and direction. A body moving in circular motion at constant speed is still accelerating because its direction is constantly changing. If either speed or direction changes, or if both change, the body is accelerating.


Can an object traveling at constant velocity have acceleration?

No. An object traveling at a constant velocity is not accelerating.


Uniform circular motion occurs when an object is traveling with what speed?

When it occurs with a speed which is subject to constant acceleration.


How is the acceleration of an object in uniform circular motion constant?

How is the acceleration of an object in uniform circular motion constant


What is circular motion?

Circular Motion -a motion along a circular path or the motion of an object in a circular Example -blades of a ceiling fan when the fan is switched on. or The motion of body along the circular path is called circular motion


When an object does circular motion what is constant?

speed... this is said to be uniform circular motion


Why is uniform circular motion called accelerated motion?

if an object moves along a circular path, the only change in its velocity is due to the change in the direction of the motion. The motion of the object moving along the circular path is, which is a uniform circular motion, is therefore an accelerated motion:):):):/


In circular motion the of and object is constly changing is?

Velocity is constantly changing in circular motion...


Picture a ball traveling at a constant speed around the inside of a circular structureis the ball accelerating?

If it's going at a constant speed then it is not accelerating. To accelerate would mean to have a rate of change for speed in some direction. If the ball is going outward while traveling at a constant speed due to centrifugal force then it is accelerating. If it's going inwards due to some ground angle then it is also accelerating. From Newton's laws we know that to have a circular motion, an object must be subject to a force directed to the centre of the structure and is accelerating in that direction. This centrifugal force, exerted by the structure to the ball, is opposite in direction and magnitude to the 'fictitious' centrifugal force.


What is the force that causes an object to follow a circular path?

Newton's Laws of Circular Motion say Centripetal Force is a force which causes an object to follow a circular path. It is proportional to the centripetal acceleration of the object.


Circular uniform motion?

Uniform circular motion is when an object is moving at a constant speed in a circular path. Objects that are in a uniform circular motion are constantly changing direction.


Why is uniform circular motion considered acceleration?

Acceleration is defined as the change in velocity divided by the time ora = (vf - vi)/tVelocity measures the speed and the direction of an object.In uniform circular motion, the object has the same speed but it is always changing direction and so, by the definition of acceleration, the object is considered accelerating. If this acceleration doesn't exist, the object would move in a straight line according to Newton's laws of motion.


An object traveling in a circle is accelerating because it is constantly changing?

An object traveling in a circle is accelerating because it constantly changes its direction even though the velocity may or may not change in magnitude.


What keeps an object in circular motion?

The centripetal force which always acts perpendicular to the motion of the object


What type of changes in motion might an object experience if it were accelerating?

An object that is accelerating may slow down, speed up, or change direction.


How do riders in a Ferris wheel posses translator y motion but not circular motion?

Any object going in a motion that is circular, IS experiencing circular motion. Translatory motion applies to objects going in a straight line....


What causes circular motion?

Circular motion is due to the direction of a body/particle/object perpendicular to a radius of the circle drawn to the point of location of the object on the circle.


What couses an object to move in a circular motion?

An object will move in a circular fashion if there is a force that pulls it toward the inside.
