Question

Motion of a satellite in circular orbit is an example of______.


  1. Non-uniform linear motion

  2. Uniform circular motion

  3. Non-uniform circular motion

  4. Uniform linear motion


Solution

The correct option is B

Uniform circular motion


If the motion of the satellite is non-uniform, then the radius of the orbit will be changing and the path won't be circular. So the motion is uniform. Moreover, as it is moving in a circle, the motion as a whole is uniform circular motion.
