Uniform Circular Motion
When an object moves in a circle, its velocity is
continuously changing direction
The direction of the objects velocity is tangent
to the circle
The magnitude of the velocity is called

In insulators, electrons are bound in orbit to the
nucleus in each atom.
When charge is placed on an insulator, it stays in one region
and does not distribute.
