    • Uniform Circular Motion
    • Uniform Circular Motion
      • - Describes motion in which an object moves at a constant speed along a circular path.
    • But how does it work?
      • Uniform circular motion is caused by the effect a force directed towards the center of the object that is spinning, the centripetal force.
    • Acceleration
      • Like the centripetal force, the acceleration is also always pointed towards the center.
      • When an object changes direction, it accelerates, even if the velocity does not change.
      • Therefore, we know that the object involved in uniform circular motion is always accelerating.
    •  
      • The velocity of the object, unlike the centripetal force and acceleration, is not constantly pointed towards the center.
      • In fact, the velocity of the object is always directed towards a different point.
      • The velocity is always pointed tangent to the circle where the object is in its motion.
    • The Equation For Centripetal Force
    • F c=( m )( a c)
      • Where:
      • F c = Centripetal Force
      • m= Mass Of Object
      • a c = Centripetal Acceleration
      • I hope this PowerPoint helped you in your understanding of Uniform Circular Motion!
