NEET - ALL Class - Physics - Motion
An object follows a curved path. Can its speed and magnitude of acceleration be constant during the motion?
The instantaneous direction of movement changes continuously in case of a curved path. So, a vector cannot remain constant on a curved path because it has both magnitude and direction. So, if we consider velocity and acceleration which are vectors and therefore they will change. Speed and magnitude of acceleration do not have directions and remain constant on a curved path.
