Basic Properties Properties can be derived by basic definitions The period, T (time it takes to complete one rotation), is: For objects taking the same time to complete a circuit, the velocity of the object at greatest radius is the greatest. T = 2 π r v

Centripetal Acceleration Velocity is always changing direction so the object is accelerating. a c = v 2 r
