Circular Motion

When calculating angles in circular motion we use units of? Radians
To convert from degrees to radians we multiply by pi/180
To convert todegrees from radians multiply by 180/pi
Angular velocity is.... the angle swept out by a radius per unit time, symbol w
The units for angular velocity is rad/s
angular velocity = angle change/time
angular velocity is also related to the frequency of a system
angular velocity also = 2 x pi x f
The time period of a system can be eqauted to 1/f or 2pi/angular velocity
The linear speed of an object moving in a circle is related to its angular velocity
linear speed = radius x angular velocity
The force on an object moving in a circular path is also called centripetal force
the size of a centripetal force is given by either F=mv^2/r or mrw^2
centripetal acceleration = v^2/r or rw^2

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
