6 Motion in a circle with: – constant radius R – constant speed v = | v | – r(t) and v(t) are rotating vectors – Is the velocity constant? What is Uniform Circular Motion?
7 Uniform circular motion • Velocity changes direction, magnitude stays the same. There must be an acceleration! • Remember definition of average acceleration: r a av ( t ) = r v 2 " r v 1 t 2 " t 1 r a ( t ) = lim # t \$ 0 # r v # t R v 2 v 1
