Uniform circular motion is characterized by an object moving round the circumference of a circle at a constant speed.

However, the direction of the velocity is constantly changing.

Also, centripetal acceleration is always towards the center, so direction changes constantly.

Centripetal acceleration has the same direction as the net force in UCM.
