#### Storyboard Text

• ﻿Uniform Circular Motion
• 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.
