Lecture 9 Purdue University, Physics 220 2 Overview • Last Lecture – Circular Motion θ = angular position radians ω = angular velocity radians/second • Circular to linear conversions s = r θ , v = r ω – Uniform Circular Motion • Speed is constant • Direction is changing • Centripetal acceleration a = v 2 / r • Today – Satellite Orbits and Planetary Motion – Non-uniform Circular Motion – Weightlessness and Artificial Gravity

Lecture 9 Purdue University, Physics 220 3 Uniform Circular Motion • Period: – Time to travel around the circle (s) • Frequency: – Revolution per unit time (Hz=s -1 ) • Velocity: Distance/time (m/s) • Angular velocity: ω = Δθ / Δ t – How fast it is rotating – Units: radians/second (2 π = 1 revolution)
