Physics 101: Lecture 11, Pg 2 Centripetal Force Centripetal Force R a c 2 ϖ = R T a c 2 2 = π R a c 2 v = Define frequency f , period T , angular velocity ϖ : ( 29 R f a c 2 2 = Centripetal acceleration: Acceleration is the result of a net-force acting on an object. In case of a c this net-force is called centripetal force, F c : Magnitude of F c : F c = Σ F= m a c = m v 2 /R Direction of F c : always points towards the center of the circle The period T is the time required to travel once around the circle, ie to make one complete revolution: T=2 π R/v
