If a body moving in a circular path maintains constant speed of 10 ms-1, then which of the following correctly describes relation between acceleration and radius ?

  • Option 1)

  • Option 2)

  • Option 3)

  • Option 4)

As we learnt in

Centripetal acceleration -

When a body is moving in a uniform circular motion, a force is responsible to change direction of its velocity.This force acts towards the centre of circle and is called centripetal force.Acceleration produced by this force is centripetal acceleration.

a= \frac{v^{2}}{r}

- wherein

Figure Shows Centripetal acceleration


 a=\frac{v^2}{r}   \because \left | \vec{v} \right |= constant

a\propto \frac{1}{r} or ar = constant

Option 1)


Option 2)


Option 3)


Option 4)
