Uniform Circular motion

In this post, we will cover a bunch of questions and equations from the Uniform Circular Motion chapter. When a particle moves in a circle with constant speed, the motion is called uniform circular motion. Examples of uniform circular motion: A car rounding a curve with a constant radius at a constant speed, a satellite […]

Derive formulas of centripetal force & centripetal acceleration

In this post, we will derive formulas of centripetal acceleration & centripetal force while we discuss the uniform circular motion. Uniform circular motion & its acceleration An object moving with uniform circular motion moves along a circular path of fixed radius at a constant speed. Since the direction of motion of the object is constantly […]
