Vocabulary Uniform Circular Motion Centripetal acceleration – 3. Equation for centripetal acceleration Discuss Centripetal force p229

1. Uniform Motion Type of circular motion which occurs when an object moves at constant speed in a circular path . Circular motion which Object’s speed around its path remains constant with changing velocity or changing direction

2. Centripetal Acceleration
Acceleration in a uniform circular motion Center seeking acceleration Constant speed but changing direction constantly must be directed radially inward Acceleration vector points toward the center Depends on the object’s speed, radius r

3. 3. Equation of Centripetal Acceleration :
ac= v2 / r

4. Centripetal Force Fc = mac = m v2 /r
Net inward force which causes an inward acceleration Fc = mac = m v2 /r Directed toward the center of the circular path Always perpendicular to the direction of motion Could be the A. tension of the string , B. friction or C. caused by gravity

5.Critical Point – CRITICAL VELOCITY
Critical point occurs at the highest point of the circular motion . The velocity at the highest point of a vertical uniform circular motion is Critical Velocity. Critical point or critical velocity happens when the tension on the string is 0 N . This is the speed necessary to maintain circular motion.

Examples 6. An object of mass 5 kg at a constant speed of 6 m/s in a circular path of radius 2m . Find the object’s acceleration and the net force responsible for this motion . ac= v2 / r = ( 6 m /s )2 / 2m = m/ s2 Fc = mac = 5kg ( 18m/s2) = 90 N

7. A 10 kg mass is attached to a string that has a breaking point of 200 N . If the mass is whirled in a horizontal circle of radius 80 cm , what is the maximum speed can it have? Tension on the string provides the centripetal force FT = Fc = m ac = m v2 / r v = √ Fc r /m v = √ ( 200 N ) ( 0.8 m ) / 10 kg v = 4m/s

8. An athlete who weighs 800 N is running around a curve at a speed of 5m/s in an arc whose radius of curvature r, is 5 m . Find the centripetal force acting on him . What provides the centripetal force? What could happen to him if r were smaller ? Fc = m ac = m V2 /r m = Fw / g = 800 N / 10 m/s2 = 80 kg Fc = 80 kg ( 5m/s) 2 / 5m = 400 N Friction provides the centripetal force . The athlete will slip .

9. A roller coaster car enters the circular loop portion of the ride
9. A roller coaster car enters the circular loop portion of the ride. At the very top of the circle( where the people in the car are upside down) the speed of the car is 15 m/s and the acceleration points straight down. If the diameter of the loop is 40m and the total mass of the car (plus the passengers) is 1200 kg , find the magnitude of the normal force exerted by the track on the car at this point. Normal Force and m = 1200kg d =40m Weight provides v = 15m/s r = 20m Centripetal force Fc = FN + Fw = mac = m v2 / r = 1200 kg ( 15m/s)2/ 20m = 13,500 N FN = Fc – Fw = 13,500 N – mg= 13,500 N- 1200kg (10m/s2) = 1500 N

Centripetal Force is the combination of Normal force and weight .
10. How would the normal force change in example 9 if the car was at the bottom of the circle ? Centripetal Force is the combination of Normal force and weight . Fc = FN- Fw FN = Fc + Fw = 13, 500 N + 12,000N = 25,500 N FN Fw

What is the speed of the bucket if the tension of the rope at the lowest point of its path is 40 N ? b. What is the critical speed if the rope would become slack when the bucket reaches the highest point in the circle ?

2. An object moves at a constant speed in a circular path of radius r at a rate of 2 revolution per second . What is its acceleration in terms of r and π ? 3. An object m =2 kg at the end of the string is whirled around in the vertical circle. The circular motion has a radius of 0.5 m. If the speed of the object is 4m/s at the bottom of the circle a. What is the tension of the string at that point ? b. What is the minimum speed necessary for the object to obtain circular motion ?
