Solve problems, model and make quantitative predictions about objects executing uniform circular motion in a variety of situations

  • Whenever solving problems for uniform circular motion, identify the force that is contributing as the centripetal force.,
  • Then equate the force with the required centripetal force centripetal force

? gives angular speed.

Δ?  gives the angle covered in time t

relationship between angular speed ?  and linear speed ? is  :
