# Read Each Statement Below Carefully and State, With Reasons, If It is True Or False: the Acceleration Vector of a Particle in Uniform Circular Motion Averaged Over One Cycle is a Null Vector - CBSE (Science) Class 11 - Physics

#### Question

Read each statement below carefully and state, with reasons, if it is true or false:

The acceleration vector of a particle in uniform circular motion averaged over one cycle is a null vector

#### Solution

True

In uniform circular motion (UCM), the direction of the acceleration vector points toward the centre of the circle. However, it constantly changes with time. The average of these vectors over one cycle is a null vector.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
