Uniform Circular Motion

(1)Velocity is continiously changing as the direction of velocity is changing. The Speed of the mass remains constant (speed = |velocity|)
2. The centripetal force is keeping the mass in its path and is given by, F = mv^2/R
3. If a mass m tied to the end of a string is whirled in a vertical circle, the tension in the string wiil be max at the bottom and minimum at the top

T = centripetal force - mg (min)

4. Tangential acceleration is zero in ...
