AMUSEMENT PARK RIDE <br />
Swing Ride Showing Uniform Circular Motion<br />
The swing moves in a circle at constant speed. However, it is accelerating due to its change in direction. The direction of the acceleration is inward. The net force is directed towards the center of the circle. This is centripetal force.
