Why somebody needs to know about circular motion Otherwise we wouldnt go on those rides? Space station, satellites, live from overseas Planets, Comets and Moons
Uniform Circular Motion Velocity is a vector, it has both direction and magnitude Simplest case: direction constant, magnitude changes. Linear Motion We will now study another simple case: magnitude is constant and direction continually changes. Uniform Circular Motion
7 Circular Motion X θ = 0 y i f How do we locate something on a circle? Give its angular position θ What is the location of 90 0 or π/ 2
8 Circular Motion is the angular position. Angular displacement : Note : angles measured Clockwise (CW) are negative and angles measured (CCW) are positive. is measured in radians. 2 radians = 360 = 1 revolution x y i f
What is a radian? C =2πr = (total angle of one rotation) x r Radian measure relates displacement along circumference to angular displacement
10 Circular Motion X θ = 0 y i f How do we locate something on a circle? Give its angular position θ What is the location of 90 0 or π/ 2 From θ =0 to θ = 90 0 we have gone ¼ of way around ¼ of 2π =π/2
11 x y i f r arclength = s = r is a ratio of two lengths; it is a dimensionless ratio! This is a radian measure of angle If we go all the way round s =2πr and Δθ =2 π

13 If we move around a circle we change θ. How fast does θ change? The average and instantaneous angular velocities ω are: is measured in rads/sec.

Question A CD makes one complete revolution every tenth of a second. Which has the largest linear (tangential) velocity? A)point 1 B)point 2 C)point 3 D)point 4
18 The time it takes to go one time around a closed path is called the period (T). Comparing to v = r : ω = v/r f is called the frequency, the number of revolutions (or cycles) per second. f = 1/T
19 Centripetal Acceleration Here, v 0. The direction of v is changing. If v 0, then a 0. The net force cannot be zero. Consider an object moving in a circular path of radius r at constant speed. x y v v v v
20 Conclusion: to move in a circular path, an object must have a nonzero net force acting on it. It is always true that F = ma. What acceleration do we use?
21 The velocity of a particle is tangent to its path. For an object moving in uniform circular motion, the acceleration is radially inward.
22 All three angles =Δθ = Δr/r =vΔt/r Δv=vΔθ = v 2 Δt/r
23 The magnitude of the radial acceleration is: Δv=vΔθ = v 2 Δt/r a r = Δv/Δt = v 2 Δt/rΔt
What makes it go round? A particle in circular motion is accelerating so there must be a force providing this acceleration F =ma = mv 2 /r

Centrifuge Salad spinners, spin drying, Uranium centrifuges Need force to keep spinning. If object overcomes that force it moves out of circle.(spinners, drying) More massive particles are harder to rotate F r = Mv 2 /r (uranium) If there is no normal force or friction (which depend on M) more massive particles will be thrown out of circle.
35 Unbanked and Banked Curves Example (text problem 5.20): A highway curve has a radius of 825 m. At what angle should the road be banked so that a car traveling at 26.8 m/s has no tendency to skid sideways on the road? (Hint: No tendency to skid means the frictional force is zero.) Take the cars motion to be into the page.
36 Nonuniform Circular Motion Here, the speed is not constant. There is now an acceleration tangent to the path of the particle. The net acceleration of the body is atat v arar a Recall v is tangential =ωr
37 atat arar a a t changes the magnitude of v. a r changes the direction of v. Can write:

Gravity and Circular Motion What keeps the Moon going around the Earth? Why do planets go around the Sun? What determines the orbits of satellites? How can we weigh the Earth? the Sun? What is the Universe made of?
Circular Orbits Consider an object of mass m in a circular orbit about the Earth. Earth r The only force on the satellite is the force of gravity: The speed of the satellite :
How much does the Earth weigh? Solve for M e We measure v of satellite, we measure how high it is (r), we can measure G in the lab, hence we calculate M e. We have weighed the Earth!
Weigh the Sun What about the Earth going around the sun? Gravity keeps the Earth moving around Sun. Same equations as for the satellite. Gravity is universal r R (distance from Sun to Earth) m s M s
Weighing the Sun How fast are we traveling around the Sun? (v) v=2πR/T T = 1 year From astronomy we can measure R We have weighed the Sun
