Transcript

  • 1. MechanicsTopic 2.4 Uniform Circular Motion
  • 2. Circular Motion A body moving with uniform speed in a circle is changing velocity as the direction changes. This change of velocity, and the acceleration is directed towards the centre of the circle This acceleration is called the centripetal acceleration
  • 3. Vector Diagrams velocity at a tangent uniform speed Acceleration and force directed towards the centre
  • 4. Centripetal Acceleration The expression for centripetal acceleration is a = v2 = 4π2r r T2  Where v is the velocity at any instant (i.e.the constant speed)  And r is the radius of the circle  T is the time period of one complete circle
  • 5. Centripetal Force The expression for centripetal force is F = mv2 r  Where v is the velocity at any instant (i.e.the constant speed)  m is the mass of the object  And r is the radius of the circle
  • 6. Examples of Centripetal Force include the gravitational force keeping the moon in its orbit the friction acting sideways on the tyres of a car turning a corner the tension in a rope, when a bucket of water is swung around your head
