## The differences between Uniform circular motion and projectile motion with diagrams

The acceleration in a uniform circular motion (Fig. 1) has some similarities to the acceleration in projectile motion (Fig. 2) without air resistance, but there are also some important differences between Uniform circular motion and projectile motion. Differences between Uniform circular motion and projectile motion 1) In both kinds of motion, the magnitude of the […]

## Satellite & Circular Motion & understanding of Geostationary Satellite

We will discuss here the circular motion of satellites, state of free fall of satellites, types of orbits, geostationary satellite and low Earth orbit satellites. Satellites undergo circular motion Satellites orbiting the Earth, including the Moon, are examples of objects undergoing circular motion. In this case of circular motion, the centripetal force is provided by […]

## 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 […]

## Angular Motion & Linear Motion Quantities – derivation of 3 relations

In this post, we will focus on the definitions of circular motion and linear motion first which will show their basic differences as well. In addition to this, we’ll derive a couple of important relationships between the quantities of circular motion and linear motion. We will derive the following:a) Relationship between angular displacement and linear displacementb) […]
