You're definitely not the only one who's been to school Mags. I've just managed to remember a few things over the years.
Whoaaa.. I've been so absorbed with trying to figure things out i forgot to ask for help!
Ok now tell me more. I know that a circumference is the distance that an object..travels about a circle but how is that related to force and acceleration?
Ok, you know that objects move in a circular motion.
That circular motion is made possible by something called Centripetal Force. It's what's responsible for keeping that object in motion. If you were to remove and object's Centripetal Force, it would cease to move in a circular path.
Now, Centripetal Acceleration is the acceleration experienced by an object undergoing UCM.
I'm going to tutor the heck out of my club mates tomorrow!
Sit down Ms. Happy Pants we still have lots to go.
