Question

Which of the following example shows, an object does not change its magnitude of velocity but only its direction of motion ?


A
Parachutist bailing out of aeroplane
loader
B
Motion of a body along a circular path
loader
C
A body moving up against gravity
loader
D
A car moving with uniform velocity in a straight line
loader

Solution

The correct option is A Motion of a body along a circular path
 In circular motion, the body moves in reference with a fixed point with a fixed radius hence, its magnitude remains constant. Since the body is moving circularly, its direction also changes.   So, motion of a body along a circular path has constant velocity and different direction.
