Unformatted text preview: gravitational, electrical or the tension in a string. Specific examples of UCM include: the conical pendulum a banked curve motion in a vertical circle Case two: general circular motion In this case the speed is changing. Therefore, there is a radial acceleration, a r (same as above) and a tangential acceleration , where a t dv/dt and v is the speed . As the name implies, the tangential acceleration points in the direction of the tangent line to the circle. Examples[in class]...
