(5) centripetal force

  1. 1. Centripetal Force
  2. 2. Centripetal Force <ul><li>Centripetal Force is the force perpendicular to the velocity of an object moving along a curved path. The centripetal force is directed toward the center of curvature of the path. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Centripetal Acceleration <ul><li>Centripetal acceleration of a particle in uniform circular motion is proportional to the square of its speed and inversely proportional to the radius of its path. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Magnitude of Centripetal Force
  5. 5. Banking Angle
  6. 6. Motion in a Vertical Circle
  7. 7. Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation <ul><li>Every two mass particles in the universe are attracted to each other by a force which is proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. </li></ul>
