Hey, guys! I was thinking we could go to the fair later to work on our physics project...
Look! A ferris wheel!
We could ride it and use the equation C = 2πr to find the circumference, or the distance around the edge of a circle!
Couldn't we also find the tangential velocity?
That describes the motion along the edge of a circle and the direction at any given point on the circle as always being along the tangent line.
Oh, that's right!
What was it called something is moving in a circular path and is directed towards the center as it rotates?
I think you're talking about centripetal acceleration. Now let's go ride the ferris wheel!
This is so much fun!!!
Now that I think about it, this all relates back to uniform circular motion, or the motion of an object in a circle at a constant speed.
Wow! You're right!
