The correct option is:
236-795_100.PNG
The magnitude of force experienced by the object moving in the circle is given as:
236-1911_101.PNG
Here m is the mass of the object, r is the radius of the circle traced by the object and v is its velocity.
In a uniform circular motion, the magnitude of the velocity of the object remains constant. Together, with mass m , radius r and velocity v being constant, the magnitude of the force experienced by the object remains constant over time and is directed towards the center.
Therefore, the uniform motion is caused by a constant magnitude net force towards the center.
Hence (C) is the correct option and the rest are ruled out.
