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

5 The direction is changing ! The velocity is therefore changing ! Even though the speed is constant

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

    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.
