- List some examples of circular motion
Circular motion is the motion of an object in a circular path or round a circle with constant speed but changing velocity due to change in the direction of travel of the object as the object moves round the circle.
Demonstration of Circular Motion
Tie a stone to one end of a rope and whirl it so that it moves in a circular path as shown below.
