Students will learn what is centripetal acceleration, where it applies and how to calculate it. Students will also learn when a force is acting as a centripetal force and how to apply it.
Calculations involving the equation a=v^2/r, angular acceleration concepts.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Centripetal Acceleration.
Shows how centripetal motion changes with position, velocity, and acceleration.
This study guide provides an overview of circular and rotational motion: centripetal force, discussion of fictitious force, calculating period and frequency, determining the rotational axis, calculating angular quantities, and precession.
