Question

A particle is acted upon by a force of constant magnitude which is always perpendicular to the velocity of the particle. If the motion of the particle takes place in a plane, then the path followed by particle is
  1. Parabolic
  2. Circular
  3. None of these
  4. Straight line


Solution

The correct option is B Circular
When a particle is subjected to a force acting perpendicular to its direction of motion, the force applied will only change the direction of motion without changing its speed. Hence the particle will describe circular path.
