UNIFORM CIRULAR MOTION
Introduction:
The velocity of a body moving following a uniform circular motion is defined as:
V = 2r/T
Where T is the period of rotation (the time for the mass to make one complete rotation). On the
other hand, according to Newton
DYNAMICS
Introduction:
According to Newtons second law the force applied to a body of mass m and the resulting
acceleration are proportional according to each other according to the formula:
F = ma

MEASUREMENT
Introduction:
Much of the work in the physics laboratory involves measurements. Length, in particular, is a
fundamental concept in physical science. Numerical values for distance indicate how far or how
big an object is. The standard unit of

Introduction:
According to Newtons second law of motion, the total external force acting on a body or system
of bodies is equal to the time rate of change of linear momentum. If the external force is zero
the momentum remains const
CONSERVATION OF MOMENTUM
Introduction:
The momentum of a moving object is defined as the objects mass multiplied by its velocity.
According to the law of Conservation of Momentum the total momentum does not change
when there is no external force. By usin
COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION
Introduction:
The vector sum of all the forces acting on a body at rest or moving at constant velocity is zero,
since the system is at equilibrium. The force of friction always opposes the motion and is,
therefore always opposite
