2. A body is traveling in a circle at a constant speed. It

1. has a constant velocity
2. has no acceleration
3. has an inward acceleration
4. has an outward radial acceleration

3. A body of mass m moves in a horizontal circle of radius r at constant speed v for one complete revolution. Which of the following statements is incorrect?

1. The angular velocity of body is directed perpendicular to the plane of circular motion.
2. The work done by the centripetal force is 2 pi m v2.
3. The change in linear momentum of the body is zero.

2. The outer wheel which leaves the ground first
3. both the wheel leave the ground simultaneously
4. Either inner wheel or the outer wheel leaves the ground

6. A car travels in a circle with constant speed. The net force on the car

1. is zero because the car is not accelerating.
2. is directed forward, in the direction of travel.
3. is directed toward the center of the curve.
