Solution

## The correct options are B If the direction of velocity is reversed, the centripetal force does not change in magnitude and direction D Its velocity changes due to change of directionA body is revolving with a constant speed along a circular path then its acceleration is directed along the radius of the circle. Also If the direction of velocity is reversed, the centripetal force does not change in magnitude and direction. And Its velocity changes due to change of direction
