MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View Uniform Circular Motion Learning Goal: To find the velocity and acceleration vectors for uniform circular motion and to recognize that this acceleration is the centripetal acceleration. Suppose that a particle's position is given by the following expression: . Part A Choose the answer that best completes the following sentence: The particle's motion at can be described by ____________. ANSWER: an ellipse starting at time on the positive x axis an ellipse starting at time on the positive y axis a circle starting at time on the positive x axis a circle starting at time on the positive y axis The quantity is defined to be the angular velocity of the particle. Note that must have units of radians per second. If is constant, the particle is said to undergo uniform circular motion . Part B When does the particle first cross the negative x axis? Express your answer in terms of some or all of the variables , , and . ANSWER: = Now, consider the velocity and speed of the particle.
