#### Storyboard Text

• ﻿I wonder why the ferris wheel spins the same each time it moves.﻿
• 2) Woah!! Motion? What causes the ferris wheel to move at an constant motion?﻿
• ﻿1) You see this is possible because of a process called Uniform Circular Motion. This describes an object's motion at a constant that is following a circular path.
• 3) ﻿Well, as a basic way of looking at it, the centripetal force is what causes the wheel to move in its path.
• So, the centripetal force is what keeps the ferris wheel accelerating.﻿
• The Ferris Wheel doesn't necessarily ﻿have centripetal acceleration because it is traveling at a constant, however the tangential velocity is what keeps the rotation happening.
