3.6 Further mechanics and thermal physics

3.6.1 Periodic motion 3.6.1.1 Circular motion Content Motion in a circular path at constant speed implies there is an acceleration and requires a centripetal force. Magnitude of angular speed, ω = v/r Radian as a measure of angle. Direction of angular velocity will not be considered. Centripetal acceleration, a = v2/r = ω2r. The derivation of the … Continue reading 3.6 Further mechanics and thermal physics
