Non Unifrom Circular Motion
Forgive me if this question is stupid.
How an object undergoes circular motion when the trajectory is not circular. I mean if it is not moving in a circle then why is it called circular motion.
Let's suppose I am running along a circular path and I have a leaking cup of paint with me. Of course as long as speed is not changing, the paint will trace out a nice circular path.
But if I start increasing my speed, won't I go slightly of the circular track because I would have traveled just a tiny bit than was necessary ??
