Physics 101: Lecture 10, Pg 2 You are twirling a ball on string. What happens if the string breaks ? a b c Answer: b v
Physics 101: Lecture 10, Pg 3 Acceleration in Uniform Circular Motion Acceleration in Uniform Circular Motion (circular motion with constant speed) (circular motion with constant speed) v 1 v 2 v v 2 v 1 R R a v R = 2 centripetal acceleration a a = v v / t Uniform motion: magnitudes of v1,v2 are equal: v 1 =v 2 =v Distance traveled (small Distance traveled (small t) : t) : R = v R = v t Similar triangles: R/R = v/v => => v/ v/ t= v t= v 2 /R /R
