if an object is rotating at a constant angular velocity then there is no force being applied to it.

I'm not sure you know what rotation is.

According to you, these are completely unnecessary: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=mpu6050

Yet they exist... how do you explain that?

Q1: You are going east at 1km/h, and then  you go west at 1km/h. Is there a change in velocity?

Yes.  The object has to stop to go in the opposite direction.

Dhenry, you are making yourself look worse and worse with every post you make.  If you have any dignity left, before your next post, do some research on the subject.

Is this one of those "what colour was the bear?" type questions?
Of course there is a change of velocity, because velocity is a vector quantity, so specifies a rate of displacement and direction.

What was it the OP was asking about?

To save you some time, the radial acceleration for an object orbiting at speed v and radius r is v^2 / r.

I guess this thread shows why we need better teachers.

What does that have to do with measuring yaw using an accelerometer?

I thought it was one big turtle and four elephants?

Copy and paste featuring Google makes everyone sound smart.
