Fri. Sep 17 Phy107 Lecture 6 Acceleration = change in velocity change in time Velocity at time t 1 Velocity at time t 2 •Speed is same, but direction has changed •Velocity has changed

Fri. Sep 17 Phy107 Lecture 6 How has the velocity changed? Velocity at time t 1 Velocity at time t 2 V(t 1 ) V(t 2 ) Change in velocity Centripetal acceleration = v 2 / r, directed toward center of orbit. r = radius of orbit

Fri. Sep 17 Phy107 Lecture 6 Earth’s pull on the moon • The moon continually accelerates toward the earth, • But because of its orbital velocity, it continually misses the Earth. • The orbital speed of the moon is constant, but the direction continually changes. • Therefore the velocity changes with time. True for any body in circular motion
