Question

# Centripetal acceleration always points:

- Away from the centre of the circle formed by the uniform circular motion.
- Towards 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 circular motion.
- In the direction of object’s motion

Hint:

### Centripetal acceleration ac is the acceleration experienced while in uniform circular motion

## The correct answer is: Towards the center of the circle formed by the uniform circular motion.

### Centripetal acceleration ac is the acceleration experienced while in uniform circular motion. It always points toward the center of rotation
