We will be learning about Uniform Circular Motion and terms such as uniform circular motion, circumference, centripetal force, and Centripetal Acceleration.
That topic seems difficult.
It's too nice outside to be in here.
Let's go outside it is super nice!
I like your suggestion very much we can use nature to see the terms in this lesson the first being Uniform Circular Motion.
The professor explains the subject he will be teaching today.
Uniform Circular Motion refers to the motion of an object traveling at a constant speed in a circular path. The sun is a great example because if something were to be traveling around it at a constant speed it would demonstrate uniform circular motion. The sun also has a circumference.
The class is sad that they have to learn inside that day.
Hey Y'all! Circumference is the distance around a circle. If you have a uniform circular motion you would be making many circles around my circumference.
The professor moves the class outside for the day to learn about Uniform Circular Motion
Centripetal force is the force that acts on a body when moving in a circular path. The force is directed towards the center of the body's movement. You students would feel this on a roller coaster.
Centripetal acceleration is the acceleration experienced by an object going through uniform circular motion. The equation for this is: centripetal acceleration= linear speed^2/radius of a circular path. An example of this would be a car speeding up while driving around a round-about.
Everyone looks at the sun, where the professor describes how this could be an example of Uniform Circular Motion.
The sun describes to the students what the term circumference is.
Want to know what causes Uniform Circular Motion?! That would be Centripetal force.
The Professor can't find an example of Centripetal force and acceleration in nature so they go back to the classroom to finish their lesson.
