# Does a constant speed indicate dynamic equilibrium?

To have a constant velocity indicates that an object is not undergoing acceleration, and therefore there cannot be a net force acting on the object. Then ${F}_{\text{net}} = 0$, and this is the definition of equilibrium. As the object is still moving, we would call this dynamic equilibrium. Here I'm thinking in terms of linear/translational motion.
However, I think of circular motion where a technically comes into play. The question posed is whether a constant speed necessarily indicates that an object is in dynamic equilibrium. In circular motion, an object might be following a circular path at a constant speed, but the velocity is necessarily constantly changing direction due to centripetal acceleration caused by the net centripetal force which is necessary to keep the object moving in a circular path. Therefore, ${F}_{\text{net}} \ne 0$ and the object is not in dynamic equilibrium.
