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
Fri. Sep 17 Phy107 Lecture 6 Experiment F=m 2 g F=m 2 g Acceleration of ball m 1 = F / m 1 = m 2 g/ m 1 m 1 accelerates inward in response to force m 2 g Acceleration = v 2 / r for circular motion
