When a stone is going around a circular path, the **instantaneous velocity** of stone is acting tangentially to the circle.

When the string breaks, the **centripetal force** stops to act.

Due to inertia, the stone continue to move along the tangent to circular path.

That is why, the stone flies off tangentially to the circular path.
