5.1 Uniform Circular Motion DEFINITION OF UNIFORM CIRCULAR MOTION Uniform circular motion is the motion of an object traveling at a constant speed on a circular path.

5.1 Uniform Circular Motion Example 1: A Tire-Balancing Machine The wheel of a car has a radius of 0.29m and it being rotated at 830 revolutions per minute on a tire-balancing machine. Determine the speed at which the outer edge of the wheel is moving. revolution min 10 2 . 1 min s revolution 830 1 3 ! " = s 072 . 0 min 10 2 . 1 3 = ! = " T ( ) s m 25 s 072 . 0 m 0.29 2 2 = = = !

Centripetal Acceleration The direction of the centripetal acceleration is towards the center of the circle; in the same direction as the change in velocity. r
