Why somebody needs to know about circular motion
Otherwise we wouldn’t 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

Circular Motion How do we locate something on a circle?
Give its angular position θ X θ = 0 y i f  What is the location of 900 or π/2 Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 5, Questions 1, 2, 3, 13, 14, 16, and 17.

Circular Motion Angular displacement:
x y i f   is the angular position. Angular displacement: Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 5, Questions 1, 2, 3, 13, 14, 16, and 17. Note: angles measured Clockwise (CW) are negative and angles measured (CCW) are positive.  is measured in radians. 2 radians = 360 = 1 revolution

What is a radian? C =2πr = (total angle of one rotation) x r
Radian measure relates displacement along circumference to angular displacement

Circular Motion How do we locate something on a circle?
Give its angular position θ X θ = 0 y i f  What is the location of 900 or π/2 From θ =0 to θ = 900 we have gone ¼ of way around ¼ of 2π =π/2 Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 5, Questions 1, 2, 3, 13, 14, 16, and 17.

If we go all the way round s =2πr and Δθ =2 π
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

Question A child runs around the circular ledge of a fountain which has a diameter of 6.5 m. After the child has run 9.8 m, her angular displacement is A) 0.48 rad. B) 6.0 rad. C) 1.5 rad. D) 3.0 rad.

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.

v and ω For circular motion—How far do you travel during Δt if you are spinning at an angular velocity ω? How far? s = Δθ r = ω Δt r How fast? (speed) v = s/Δt =ωr v =ωr

Question A child runs around the circular ledge of a fountain which has a diameter of 6.5 m. If it takes her 72 seconds to run all the way around, her angular velocity is A) rad/s B) 0.57 m/s C) 0.17 rad/s D) rad/s

Question A CD makes one complete revolution every tenth of a second. The angular velocity of point 4 is: A) the same as for pt 1. B) twice that of pt 2. C) half that of pt 2. D) 1/4 that of pt 1. E) four times that of pt 1.

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

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

Centripetal Acceleration
x y v Consider an object moving in a circular path of radius r at constant speed. Here, v  0. The direction of v is changing. Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 5, Questions 4 and 7. If v  0, then a  0. The net force cannot be zero.

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?

The velocity of a particle is tangent to its path.
For an object moving in uniform circular motion, the acceleration is radially inward.

All three angles =Δθ = Δr/r =vΔt/r
Δv=vΔθ = v2 Δt/r

Δv=vΔθ = v2 Δt/r ar = Δv/Δt = v2Δt/rΔt
The magnitude of the radial acceleration is:

What makes it go round? F =ma = mv2/r
A particle in circular motion is accelerating so there must be a force providing this acceleration F =ma = mv2/r

Question A spider is sitting on a turntable that is rotating at 33rpm. The acceleration a of the spider is A) greater the closer the spider is to the central axis. B) greater the farther the spider is from the central axis. C) nonzero and independent of his location. D) zero.

(a) What force keeps the people from falling out the bottom of the cylinder? x y w N fs (b) If s = 0.40 and the cylinder has r = 2.5 m, what is the minimum angular speed of the cylinder so that the people don’t fall out?

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 Fr = Mv2/r (uranium) If there is no normal force or friction (which depend on M) more massive particles will be “thrown” out of circle.

(Hint: No tendency to skid means the frictional force is zero.)

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: Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 5, Questions 9 and 20. The speed of the satellite:

How much does the Earth weigh?
Solve for Me We measure v of satellite , we measure how high it is (r) , we can measure G in the lab, hence we calculate Me . 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) ms Ms

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

Gravitational Orbits We can do this for any objects in gravitational orbit around each other. Independent of the mass of the orbiting object. Depends only on the mass of the central object. Planets around Sun, Moons around Planets ….. General formula
