Question

# Centrifugal acceleration always points:

- In the opposite direction of the center of the circle
- In the direction of the center of the circle formed by the uniform circular motion.
- In the tangential direction of the center of the circle formed by the uniform
- In the direction of object’s motion

Hint:

### Centripetal acceleration has a constant magnitude

## The correct answer is: In the opposite direction of the center of the circle

### Centripetal acceleration has a constant magnitude since both v and r are constant, but since the direction of v keeps on changing at each instant in a circular motion, hence centripetal acceleration's direction also keeps on changing at each instant, always pointing towards the centre.
