# Velocity of Circular Motion

Not what you're looking for?

Assuming a perfectly circular orbit, how do you calculate the velocity of an object as it orbits around another object assuming for the rotating object that R=150x 10 to the six power km?

##### Solution Summary

The solution provides a detailed and step-by-step explanation for the problem.

##### Solution Preview

In physics, circular motion is rotation with constant speed around in a circle: a circular path or a circular orbit. It is one of the simplest cases of accelerated motion. Circular motion involves acceleration of the moving object by a centripetal force which pulls the moving object towards the center of the circular orbit. Without this acceleration, the object would move inertially in a ...
