  1. 1. Prof. Mukesh N. Tekwani Department of Physics I. Y. College, Mumbaimukeshtekwani@outlook.com © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 1
  2. 2. Circular Motion © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 2
  3. 3. Why study Circular Motion?• To understand – Motion of planets – Motion of electrons around the nucleus – Motion of giant wheel – Motion of space stations – Motion of moon and satellites © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 3
  4. 4. Circular Motion• It is defined as the motion of a particle along a complete circle or part of a circle.• Fore circular motion, it is NOT necessary that the body should complete a full circle.• Even motion along arc of a circle is circular motion © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 4
  5. 5. Circular MotionHow do we locate something on a circle?Give its angular position θ y f What is the location of i X 900 or π/2 θ=0 © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 5
  6. 6. Circular Motion y f is the angular position. i Angular displacement: x f iNote: angles measured Clockwise (CW) are negative andangles measured (CCW) are positive. is measured inradians. 2 radians = 360Tekwani, 1 revolution © Prof. Mukesh N = 2011 6
  7. 7. Angular Displacement• Angular displacement is defined as the angle described by the radius vector Initial position of particle is a Final position of particle is b Angular displacement in time t is Θ a © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 7
  8. 8. Angular Displacement S =r Θ © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 8
  9. 9. arclength = s = ry s f r r i is a ratio of two lengths; x it is a dimensionless ratio! This is a radian measure of angle If we go all the way round s =2πr and Δθ =2 π © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 9
  10. 10. Right Hand RuleIf the fingers of theright hand are curledin the direction ofrevolution of theparticle, then theoutstretched thumbgives the direction ofthe angulardisplacement vector. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 11
  11. 11. Stop & Think – Pg 2Are the following motions same or different?1. The motion of the tip of second hand of a clock.2. The motion of the entire second hand of a clock.The motion of the tip of second hand of a clock is uniform circular motion.The motion of the entire second hand is a rotational motion. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 12
  12. 12. Centripetal Force• UCM is an accelerated motion. Why?• UCM is accelerated motion because the velocity of the body changes at every instant (i.e. every moment)• But, according to Newton’s Second Law, there must be a force to produce this acceleration.• This force is called the centripetal force.• Therefore, Centripetal force is required for circular motion. No centripetal force +> no circular motion. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 25
  13. 13. Velocity and Speed in UCM Is speed changing? No, speed is constant Is velocity changing? Yes, velocity is changing because velocity is a vector – and direction is changing at every point © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 26
  14. 14. Velocity and Speed in UCM Is speed changing? No, speed is constant Is velocity changing? Yes, velocity is changing because velocity is a vector – and direction is changing at every point © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 27
  15. 15. Examples of Centripetal forceA body tied to a stringand whirled in ahorizontal circle – CPFis provided by thetension in the string. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 28
  16. 16. Examples of Centripetal force• For a car travelling around a circular road with uniform speed, the CPF is provided by the force of static friction between tyres of the car and the road. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 29
  17. 17. Examples of Centripetal force• In case of electrons revolving around the nucleus, the centripetal force is provided by the electrostatic force of attraction between the nucleus and the electrons• In case of the motion of moon around the earth, the CPF is provided by the ______ force between Earth and Moon © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 30
  18. 18. Centripetal Force• Centripetal force – It is the force acting on a particle performing UCM and this force is along the radius of the circle and directed towards the centre of the circle. REMEMBER! Centripetal force - acting on a particle performing UCM - along the radius - acting towards the centre of the circle. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 31
  19. 19. Properties of Centripetal Force1. Centripetal force is a real force2. CPF is necessary for maintaining UCM.3. CPF acts along the radius of the circle4. CPF is directed towards center of the circle.5. CPF does not do any work6. F = mv2/ r © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 32
  20. 20. Radial Acceleration Let P be the position of the particleY performing UCM v P(x, y) r is the radius vectorN Θ = ωt . This is the angular displacement of r the particle in time t secs y θ V is the tangential velocity of the particle at O x M X point P. Draw PM ┴ OX The angular displacement of the particle in time t secs is LMOP = Θ = ωt © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 33
  21. 21. Radial AccelerationY The position vector of the particle at v any time is given by: P(x, y) r = ix + jyN r From ∆POM y θ sin θ = PM/OP O x M X ∴ sin θ = y / r ∴y = r sin θ But θ = ωt ∴ y = r sin ωt © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 34
  22. 22. Radial AccelerationY Similarly, v From ∆POM P(x, y)N cos θ = OM/OP r y ∴ cos θ = x / r θ O x M X ∴ x = r cos θ But θ = ωt ∴ x = r cos ωt © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 35
  23. 23. Radial AccelerationThe velocity of particle at any instant (any time) is called itsinstantaneous velocity.The instantaneous velocity is given byv = dr / dt∴ v = d/dt [ ir cos wt + jr sin wt]∴ v = - i r w sin wt + j r w cos wt © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 36
  24. 24. Radial AccelerationThe linear acceleration of the particle at any instant (any time) iscalled its instantaneous linear acceleration. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 37
  25. 25. Radial AccelerationTherefore, the instantaneous linearacceleration is given by∴ a = - w2 r r aImportance of the negative sign:The negative sign in the aboveequation indicates that the linearacceleration of the particle and theradius vector are in oppositedirections. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 38
  26. 26. Relation Between AngularAcceleration and Linear AccelerationThe acceleration of a particle ∵ r is a constant radius,is given by ………………. (1) ∴But v = r w But∴ α is the angular acceleration∴a = .... (2) ∴ a=rα ………………………(3) © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 39
  27. 27. Relation Between AngularAcceleration and Linear Acceleration ∴v=wxrDifferentiating w.r.t. time t, ∴ linear acceleration a = a T + aR aT is called the tangential component of linear acceleration aR is called the radial component of linear accelerationBut For UCM, w = constant, soand ∴ a = aR ∴ in UCM, linear accln is centripetal accln © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 40
  28. 28. Centrifugal Force1. Centrifugal force is an imaginary force (pseudo force) experienced only in non-inertial frames of reference.2. This force is necessary in order to explain Newton’s laws of motion in an accelerated frame of reference.3. Centrifugal force is acts along the radius but is directed away from the centre of the circle.4. Direction of centrifugal force is always opposite to that of the centripetal force.5. Centrifugal force6. Centrifugal force is always present in rotating bodies © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 41
  29. 29. Examples of Centrifugal Force1. When a car in motion takes a sudden turn towards left, passengers in the car experience an outward push to the right. This is due to the centrifugal force acting on the passengers.2. The children sitting in a merry-go-round experience an outward force as the merry-go-round rotates about the vertical axis.Centripetal and Centrifugal forces DONOT constitute an action-reaction pair. Centrifugal force is not a real force. For action-reaction pair, both forces must be real. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 42
  30. 30. Banking of Roads1. When a car is moving along a curved road, it is performing circular motion. For circular motion it is not necessary that the car should complete a full circle; an arc of a circle is also treated as a circular path.2. We know that centripetal force (CPF) is necessary for circular motion. If CPF is not present, the car cannot travel along a circular path and will instead travel along a tangential path. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 43
  31. 31. Banking of Roads3. The centripetal force for circular motion of the car can be provided in two ways: • Frictional force between the tyres of the car and the road. • Banking of Roads © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 44
  32. 32. Friction between Tyres and RoadThe centripetal force for circular motion of the car is provided bythe frictional force between the tyres of the car and the road.Let m = mass of the carV = speed of the car, andR = radius of the curved road.Since centripetal force is provided by the frictional force,CPF = frictional force (“provide by” means “equal to” ) (µ is coefficient of friction between tyres & road)So and © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 45
  33. 33. Friction between Tyres and RoadThus, the maximum velocity with which a car can safely travelalong a curved road is given byIf the speed of the car increases beyond this value, the car will bethrown off (skid).If the car has to move at a higher speed, the frictional forceshould be increased. But this cause wear and tear of tyres.The frictional force is not reliable as it can decrease on wet roadsSo we cannot rely on frictional force to provide the centripetalforce for circular motion. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 46
  34. 34. Friction between Tyres and Road R1 and R2 are reaction forces due to the tyres mg is the weight of the car,Center of acting vertically downwards circular path F1 and F2 are the frictional forces between the tyres and the road. These frictional forces act towards the centre of the circular path and provide the necessary centripetal force. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 47
  35. 35. Friction between Tyres and Road © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 48
  36. 36. Friction between Tyres and Road – Car Skidding © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 49
  37. 37. Banked RoadsWhat is banking of roads?The process of raising theouter edge of a road overthe inner edge through acertain angle is known asbanking of road. © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 50
  38. 38. Banking of RoadsPurpose of Banking of Roads:Banking of roads is done:1. To provide the necessary centripetal force for circular motion2. To reduce wear and tear of tyres due to friction3. To avoid skidding4. To avoid overturning of vehicles © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 51
  39. 39. Banked Roads © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 52
  40. 40. Banked RoadsWhat is angle of R cos θ Rbanking? ΘThe angle made by the R sin θsurface of the road withthe horizontal surface iscalled as angle of banking. Θ Horizontal W = mg © Prof. Mukesh N Tekwani, 2011 53
