Chapter five deals with primarily with circles and the motion that is involved with circles. This includes Circular motion, radial acceleration, centripetal acceleration, banked and un-banked turns, circular orbits, non-uniform circular motion, tangential and angular acceleration, and artificial gravity that can be created by circular motion. The thing that I enjoyed reading about the most in this chapter was the banked and un- banked turns. I have had somewhat of an understanding of this from my racing experience and now it all makes even more sense. The thing that I liked least about this chapter was the circular orbits section. This concept takes a lot of math and I am sill struggling with grasping some of the mathematical concepts needed. I also do not have an interest in the planets and I think

Unformatted text preview: that is mainly the only time orbital motion is used. The topic that was the hardest to understand was the non-uniform circular motion. This concept sounded hard even before I began to read about it. There are several different equations that are used and remembering what to use where will prove to be difficult. The easiest topic to understand would also have to be the banked and un-banked turns. I think that this was the easiest because it was one of the few concepts that on a very basic level is common sense and that helped me to have a better understanding of what was happening. Non-uniform circular acceleration still has me baffled. I do not understand the equations or what information is needed to solve them. I also do not understand how to apply Newton’s second law to the picture....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
