# Which statement is most correct?(A) Uniform circular motion causes a constant force to- ward the center.(B) Uniform circular motion is caused by a constant force toward the center.(C) Uniform circular motion is caused by a constant magnitude net force toward the center.(D) Uniform circular motion is caused by a constant magnitude net force away from the center.

The correct option is:

The magnitude of force experienced by the object moving in the circle is given as:

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.
