Orbital Velocity of Satellite Definition: Orbital Velocity of a satellite is the minimum velocity it has to maintain to continue its circular motion in its orbit. We know for a circular motion to continue, a force called centripetal force is required to work upon the object in circular motion. And this force is a real

Critical Velocity & Circular motion in Vertical plane We have earlier discussed on circular motion in horizontal plane and in that context discussed in length about Centripetal force and Centrifugal force.Today we will take a few related items to discuss, which will not only strengthen your understanding on these topics but also take it to

Centripetal force and a few must-know facts Centripetal force and its concepts have always been in the favorites list of the students. Still we find many misconceptions and assumptions in their mind, around the fundamental concepts of this force. In this post we will try to discuss on few such pointers, which will certainly help
