### Chapter 9: Circular Motion

• An axis is the straight line around which rotation takes place

• When an object turns about an internal axis.

• An axis located within the body of the object

• The motion is also called spin.

• Earth Rotates about its axis once every 24 hours.

• When an object turns about an external axis.

• Earth Revolves around the sun once every 365¼ days.

• What we simply called speed in Chapter 2.

• A distance moved per unit time.

• Linear speed varies based on radius of a circle.

• On the Merry-Go-Round, the horses on the outermost ring have to travel faster to keep up with the horses that are closer to the center axis.

• The speed of something moving along a circular path.

• We call it tangential motion because the speed is always tangent to the circle.

• We can use tangential speed and linear speed as the same thing for circular motion.

• The number of rotations per unit of time. Symbol (ω-omega)

• Sometimes called angular speed.

• All parts of the merry-go-round rotate about their axis in the same amount of time.

• Units for Rotational Speed = Rev. / second or Rev. / min.

• The record player rotates with a rotational speed of 72,000RPM.

• Tangential Speed = Radial dist x Rotational Speed

v= r ω

• Any force that causes an object to follow a circular path.

• Centripetal means “center seeking” or “toward the center.”

• The force that holds the occupants in a rotating ride.

• The Physics curse word!!!

• Very commonly misused.

• Means “center-fleeing” or “away from the center.”

• Misconception that centrifugal force pulls you outward during circular motion.

• Actual force is just the inertia of the body traveling tangent to the circle.

Simulated Gravity the ball that wants to continue moving in a straight line. Instead, the ball is forced inward to change its direction (Centripetal Force-supplied by string).

• When a wheel or apparatus is spun at just the right speed so that the acceleration feels like the gravity they are accustomed to.

Equations to Note: the ball that wants to continue moving in a straight line. Instead, the ball is forced inward to change its direction (Centripetal Force-supplied by string).

• ac= v2/r

• Fc = (mv2)/r

• Vrotational = r ω = (2π r)/t
