Physics 1D03 - Lecture 5 2 Uniform Circular Motion “uniform” means constant speed velocity changes (direction changes) acceleration : find by subtracting vectors, then v v v t = v a center 1 v 2 v 1 r What is the value of v/ t, as t 0 ?

Physics 1D03 - Lecture 5 4 From previous slide: r v r v = t t , v r v a as t 0, 2 r v a c = and so Direction: Since v i s perpendicular to r , a is perpendicular to v So, a is towards the centre of the circle (“centripetal”).
