## Centripetal And Centrifugal Force

In this post, we will define centripetal force and centrifugal force, and find out how these two differ from each other. We will also go through some examples of these forces. In this discussion, we will also understand what centripetal acceleration is. Defining Centripetal Force Centripetal Force (Fc) is the force that sustains the circular […]

## Banking Angle & Banked Curve | Banking angle formula Derivation

In this post, we will discuss the concepts of the Banking Angle & Banked Curve. Then we will study the Banking angle formula and perform the derivation of the Angle of Banking formula. Banking Angle & Banked Curve So, let’s see what the banking angle is and why it is so important.When a car travels […]

## Apparent weight of moving car over a convex or concave bridge

Apparent weight of a moving car over a convex or concave bridge is the amount of Normal Reaction the car receives while traveling over the bridge. Here the system consists of the car, the bridge which is either convex or concave and the motion of the car along the curvature. So to start off we […]

## Orbital Velocity derivation & concepts for class 11 | How to derive the orbital velocity equation?

Orbital Velocity of a satellite is the minimum velocity it has to maintain to continue its circular motion in its orbit or in other words it is the minimum velocity of the object in circular motion that generates enough centripetal force to keep it in the circular orbit of given radius. We will discuss this in details as well as we will focus on the derivation of Orbital Velocity formula.

## Critical Velocity in Vertical Circular motion – minimum velocity for a vertical circle

Today’s topic is Critical velocity in a vertical circular motion. Once we are done with its definition we will derive the Critical Velocity formula. Definition: The minimum velocity of an object at the highest point of the rotation while having a vertical circular motion, is called Critical Velocity. If the velocity of the object falls […]

## Centripetal Force and Washing machine – How centripetal force helps Washing machine operation

Centripetal Force concepts & facts with examples and Washing machine: In this post, we will discuss the fundamental concepts of centripetal force & its real-life examples like how the centripetal force helps the Washing machine operation, etc. We’ll find out how concepts of centripetal force have been intelligently implemented in Washing machines to wash clothes.
