November 2 AP Physics

2
Momentum Test return

3
In: What makes objects move in a circle?

4
Objective: To begin our study of circular motion. Success criteria: Discover the variables of centripetal force, and be able to do centripetal force and acceleration problems.

5

6
Discovery Lab: Circular motion Using the circular motion device, discover everything you can about circular motion. List your discoveries:

7
What did we find out?

8
Period ( T ) is the time it takes to go around once. Frequency ( f ) the number of times it goes around in one second T=1/ f

9
Centripetal acceleration Always toward the center a c = v 2 r

10
Centripetal force: Center seeking force Fc= mv 2 r

11
Tangential Speed V=d/t Distance = 2πr Time=T (period) So……. V= 2πr T

Problem A 2.1 m rope attaches a tire to an overhanging tree limb. A girl swinging on the tire has a tangential speed of 2.5 m/s. If the magnitude of the centripetal force is 88 N, what is the girls mass?

15
A bicyclist is riding at a tangential speed of 13.2 m/s around a circular track. The magnitude of the centripetal force is 377N, and the combined mass of the bicycle and rider is 86.5 kg. What is the tracks radius?

16
A dog sits 1.5 m from the center of a merry- go round and revolves at a tangential speed of 1.8 m/s. If the dogs mas is 18.5 kg, what is the magnitude of the centripetal force on the dog?

17
A 905 kg car travels around a circular track with a circumference of 3.25 km. If the magnitude of the centripetal force is 2140 N, what is the cars tangential speed?
