Physics Topic: Motion in a Circle

  1. Express angular displacement in radians.

  2. Understand and use the concept of angular velocity to solve problems.

  3. Recall and use v = rw to solve problems.

  4. Describe qualitatively motion in a curved path due to a perpendicular force, and understand the centripetal acceleration in the case of uniform motion in a circle.

  5. Recall and use centripetal acceleration a = rw2 and a = v2/r to solve problems.

  6. Recall and use centripetal force F = mrw2 and F = mv2/r to solve problems.
