Important points to remember About  Circular Motion ( MCQs )

  1. Circular motion When a particle moves along the circumference of a circle, its motion as called is circular motion.
  2. Motion of the electron a round the nucleus, Motion of the blades of fan is good examples of circular motion.
  3. U.C.M. is a periodic motion
  4. In Uniform Circular Motion speed of particle remains constant.
  5. In U.C.M. velocitý of particle changes due to change in direction.
  6. The direction of velocity is along the circular path.
  7. As velocity changes continuously in direction hence U.C.M. is an accelerated motion
  8. In Uniform Circular Motion workdone on the body by a force is always zero.
