Centripetal Acceleration
In uniform circular motion the acceleration is called the centripetal, or radial, acceleration. It is perpendicular to the velocity and points towards the center of the circle. v ar r Rotational Motion and the Law of Gravity

Rotational Motion and The Law of Gravity
Is it possible for an object moving with a constant speed to accelerate? Explain. A) Yes, although the speed is constant, the direction of the velocity can be changing. B) No, if the speed is constant then the acceleration is equal to zero. C) No, an object can accelerate only if there is a net force acting on it. D) Yes, if an object is moving it can experience acceleration Rotational Motion and the Law of Gravity
