The acceleration is equal to the rate of change of velocity with time, and velocity is equal to the rate of change of position with time.
Surprisingly, in uniform circular motion, which has constant speed, there is acceleration due to a change in direction. Don’t forget, acceleration is a change in velocity which has magnitude and direction!
