A car ismoving on a circular path does its velocity will change or there is an acceleration.

Hi Mishra, yes its velocity is changing as velocity has both magnitude and DIRECTION. Speed may be constant but velocity is changing in case of circular motion
As velocity changes then it must have been accelerated
That acceleration is always normal to the direction of velocity and so it has to be directed to the centre of curvature
Hence it is named as Centripetal Acceleration (centre seeking)

When a car is moving in a circular path, its direction of displacement is changing continously. Thus, its velocity is changing continously and also, it is an accelerated motion because acceleration depends on change in velocity. So the car's velocity is changing and it is also an accelerated motion.

Yes its velocity will change as the direction of car continuously changes with time.
