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 […]

## 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 […]
