Question

# An object is moving at a uniform speed in a counter clockwise direction in a uniform circular motion. At the location shown, the centripetal force stops acting on the object. Which path will the object follow?

Hint:

### In uniform circular motion, at any point the velocity is directed towards the tangent of the circle.

## The correct answer is:

### Therefore when the centripetal force stops acting on the body in an uniform circular motion, the body flies away tangentially.
