3 Imagine an object moving on a circular path with constant speed. Although the speed (length of v) is constant , the velocity is changing all the time. The acceleration is pointing toward the center, with constant magnitude. We call this , “center-aiming acceleration” Uniform Cirular Motion v 1 v 2 R v 1 v 2 v 2 v 1 Δ v =v 2 -v 1 a a v t v 2 v 1 t 2 t 1 a v 2 R centripetal acceleration Notes on Circular Motion The centripetal acceleration points toward the center of the circle.
