Solution

In uniform circular motion, a particle travels equal distances along the circular path in equal intervals of time, so the speed of particle is uniform. But the direction of motion of the particle changes at each point of circular path. Due to continuous change in direction of motion, the velocity of the particle is not uniform (or velocity is variable) i.e., the motion is accelerated.
