- My favorite weapon is my Super Orbit. It weighs about 5.16 kg and I spin it in a circle around me with a radius of 1.0m at a linear speed of 25 m/s.
- Because my father is the physicist Sir Isaac Newton, all of my super powers are related to Circular Motion
- Uniform circular motion is when an object travels at a constant speed in a circle.
- Uniform circular motion is like when I use my orbital attached to a rope using tension while swinging in a circle .
- Fc = (mv2)/r Fc = centripetal force, m = mass of the object. v = linear speed, r = radius of the circular path Fc = (5.16)(25^2)/1.0 = 3225.0
- Centripetal force is the force that acts to pull the object out of a straight path and into a circular path. The term "centripetal" means "center-seeking" or "toward the center."
- The tension i use while swinging the rope is the centripetal force acting toward the center of the circular path.
- ac = v2/r ac = centripetal acceleration v = linear speed r = radius of the circular path ac = 25^2/1.0 = 625 m/s^2
- The acceleration experienced by an object undergoing uniform circular motion is called centripetal acceleration.
- I swing my orbit at a constant speed, but because it is constantly changing direction, it accelerates.
- Circumference formula = 2(pi)(r) c=2(3.14)(1.00) c=6.28m

- The distance that my orbit travels one full time around is the circumference. c = 6.28m
