Worksheet for Interactive Lab3 Circular Motion Name Amer Mesallem __________ Physics 216 Grade ___/42 Date ______ Circular motion is one of the fundamental building blocks  for understanding the physical world because it is so common. This interactive lets you  examine the basic ideas of kinematics and forces for objects moving in circular motion. 1. (6 points) Use the controls under  Show Vectors  to draw arrows for several  different quantities. The velocity vector is drawn in a special way: a big, bold arrow  showing its direction and magnitude, plus smaller arrows for its horizontal and  vertical components. How are the directions of the acceleration and force vectors related? They are exchanged on for another  What about the directions of the velocity and force vectors?  Force is the same all the time And how are they influenced by the increase in mass and velocity slide bars?  The  greater the mass the greater the velocity force and acceleration 2. (6 points)  The large slider on the left changes the angle at which you view the  spinning system. Try watching the motion from above (the default) and from the
