Unformatted text preview: that is mainly the only time orbital motion is used. The topic that was the hardest to understand was the nonuniform 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 unbanked 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. Nonuniform 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 Newtons second law to the picture....
