Physics Topic: Motion in a Circle

Express angular displacement in radians.

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

Recall and use v = rw to solve problems.

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.

Recall and use centripetal acceleration a = rw^{2} and a = v^{2}/r to solve problems.

Recall and use centripetal force F = mrw^{2} and F = mv^{2}/r to solve problems.
