Unformatted text preview: Lecture 6 P112 Feb 1, 2008 Announcements Lab 2: Next Week Prelim 1 exam coming up in 3 weeks (Feb 28) Quiz 2: Next Week Agenda for today Uniform circular motion Non-uniform circular motion Good example where derivation is more important than result. Big Q: How do we understand pos/vel/accel for motion that is not in straight line. (circular motion is case where x-y components are not best approach) 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? 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? Uniform circular motion Velocity changes direction, magnitude stays the same. There must be an acceleration! Remember definition of average acceleration: R v 2 v 1 Uniform circular motion Direction of acceleration a is pointing toward the center of the circle Anything we can say about the magnitude of a ?...
