a. A car travels around a circular path. Does the car travel with constant speed or constant velocity?


Expert Answer

Step 1

When a car travels around a circular path, it covers equal distance in equal intervals of time.

Hence, its speed remains constant.

Step 2

During circular motion, the direction of velocity of particle at any point is given by tangent at that point. For a circ...
