Is it possible for a car to move in a circular path in such a way that it has a tangential acceleration but no centripetal acceleration?

To determine
whether it is possible for a car to move in a circular path with tangential acceleration but without centripetal acceleration.

Explanation

The centripetal acceleration of the car is the acceleration of the car in uniform circular motion.

No. it is not possible for an object to move in a circular path without centripetal acceleration. Since, the car is moving in a path which is circular; the car must have a centripetal acceleration. It is possible for a car to move in a circular path with no tangential acceleration...
