1 PHYSICS UNIT 3: CIRCULAR & ROTATIONAL MOTION

2 Circular Motion RotationRevolution

3 3 Different Kinds of Speed 1. Linear Speed - covering a distance in a time. S=D/t 2. Tangential Speed - speed of something moving in a circular path. V = 2 πr/T (Revolving!) 3. Rotational Speed - the number of rotations in a second. S r = # rot./ second Come up with an example of each.

4 CIRCULAR MOTION Uniform Circular Motion period, T: time for one complete revolution, unit: s speed is constant v = 2  r/T (r: radius) velocity is constantly changing (because direction is changing)

5 CIRCULAR MOTION all turning objects have centripetal acceleration (toward the center of the turn)

6 CIRCULAR MOTION centripetal acceleration, a c = v 2 /r the greater the speed, the greater the centripetal acceleration the smaller the radius of the turn, the greater the centripetal acceleration a centripetal acceleration requires a centripetal force

7 CIRCULAR MOTION no centrip etal force = no turning (linear motion)

8 CIRCULAR MOTION centripetal force, F c = mv 2 /r Any force can be a centripetal force: gravity (planets & moons), friction (car turning a corner), tension (ball on a string), etc.

9 CIRCULAR MOTION Frames of Reference - inside a turning object, there seems to be a centrifugal (outward from the center) force pulling on objects

10 CIRCULAR MOTION Frames of Reference - outside the turning object, we see objects inside move in a straight line (following Newton’s 1 st Law), until they get pulled into the turn by centripetal force

11 CIRCULAR MOTION centrifugal force only exists within the turning object’s frame of reference - it is a fictitious force

12 CIRCULAR MOTION Frames of Reference - things moving on a rotating object seem to be made to turn by the “coriolis force”

13 QUIZ 3.1 A child on a merry-go-round sits 1.5 m from the center and makes 2.0 complete revolutions every second. (a) Find the child's period. (b) Find the child's speed. (c) Find the child's centripetal acceleration. v = 2  r/T a c = v 2 /r F c = mv 2 /r

14 PHYSICS UNIT 3: CIRCULAR & ROTATIONAL MOTION

15 UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation: masses attract gravity force is proportional to each mass twice the mass = twice the force gravity force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the masses twice the distance = ¼ the force distance measured from center of mass : point on a body around which mass is balanced

16 UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation: F g = Gm 1 m 2 /r 2 F g : force of gravity, m: mass, r: distance between masses G: universal gravitational constant, 6.67× Nm 2 /kg 2 gravity is only significant for very large masses

17 UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION acceleration due to gravity, g = Gm e /r 2 m e : earth's mass (5.97×10 24 kg) r: distance from earth’s center (6.38×10 6 m + altitude) g is only 9.80 m/s 2 at sea level – it decreases as altitude increases g is different on other planets & moons (it depends on the planet’s mass and radius)

18 UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION Orbits: gravity provides the centripetal force stable orbit: F c = F g orbit speed v = √Gm e /r orbit period T = 2  r/v geosynchronous orbit: T = 24.0 hrs, satellite stays over same position on earth

19 UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION Orbits always falling but never reaching the ground "Weightlessness" is NOT gravity-less no gravity = no orbit weightless is no normal force

20 PHYSICS UNIT 3: CIRCULAR & ROTATIONAL MOTION

21 ROTATIONAL MOTION Rotational Motion: rotation around an internal axis angle,  : how much an object has rotated, unit: radian (rad) 2  rad = 360º = 1 revolution (rev) angular velocity,  =  /t  : rate of rotation, unit: rad/s frequency: revolutions per second, unit: Hertz, Hz 1 Hz = 1 rev/s = 2  rad/s

22 ROTATIONAL MOTION angular acceleration,  =  /t: rate of change in rotation, unit: rad/s 2 Rotational Motion & Circular Motion for any point on a spinning object: v = r  a c = r  2

23 ROTATIONAL MOTION torque,  : rotating effect of a force, unit: Nm  = Fdsin  d: "torque arm" or "lever arm“ q: angle between F and d torque direction: clockwise (c) or counterclockwise (cc)

24 ROTATIONAL MOTION Torque is zero when  = 0º or 180º Torque is maximum when  = 90º

25 ROTATIONAL MOTION Newton's Laws for Rotary Motion A spinning object keeps spinning with constant angular velocity unless a net torque acts on it A net torque causes an angular acceleration For every action torque, there is an equal and opposite reaction torque

26 ROTATIONAL MOTION Rotational Equilibrium: object is balanced, or moves with constant angular velocity, due to no net torque  t c =  t cc F1F1 d1d1 F2F2 d2d2 F 2 d 2 = F 1 d 1
