Question

An object is moving in a uniform circular motion. It is released while moving in a circular motion. It will

  1. Fly out tangentially to the circular path.
  2. It will fly out radially to the circular path
  3. It will continue to move in circle
  4. It will move towards the center of the circle.

hintHint:

The centripetal force stops working when object is released in motion.

The correct answer is: Fly out tangentially to the circular path.


    In a uniform circular motion, velocity at any point is directed towards the tangent at that point, therefore when the object is released, the centripetal force stops working and the object flies outward tangentially.
