Class practical: Measuring the variables involved in circular motion, to find out whether the formula for centripetal...
Class practical: This is a modification of the practical, Experimental test of F = mv²/R.
Demonstration: An alternative method of investigating centripetal force quantitatively.
Two methods are given in this resource: the first method follows directly from an experimental results (Newton's method); and...
In this episode, you will introduce the importance of circular motion and explain the need for a centripetal force to keep an...
This episode discusses: linear and angular velocity; degrees and radians; and angular acceleration. And is accompanied by...
The circular motion of the hanger means that a centripetal force acts to keep the coin firmly in place while you’re swinging
Just as is the case for some students, Newton is reported to have struggled to change his conception of motion from one...
