2 Here, v 0 . The direction of v is changing. If v 0, then the acceleration a 0. The net force cannot be zero F = m a 0 Consider an object moving in a circular path of radius r at constant speed V:( magnitude , direction ) const. speed = const. magnitude But: the direction is not constant x y v v v v

3 Conclusion: to move in a circular path , an object must have a nonzero net force acting on it. The velocity is changing since its Direction is changing Therefore there is an acceleration associated to it Therefore there is a nonzero net force

6 is the angular position . Angular displacement : i f Convention: angles measured Clock Wise (CW) are negative and angles measured CCW (Counter Clock Wise) are positive. is measured in radians . 2 radians = 360 =1 revolution x y i f
