Unit 6: Central Net Force Model (CNFM)
Unit 7 Learning Targets for the Central Force Particle Model (CFPM)
CFPM.1- I can calculate the magnitude and direction of the acceleration for a particle experiencing uniform circular motion (UCM).
CFPM.2- I can use Newton’s 2nd Law to solve problems for a particle experiencing UCM.
CFPM.3- I can use the Universal Law of Gravitation to solve problems.
Physics Classroom Tutorials
We will focus on Circular Motion and Satellite Motion
Be sure to read the lessons and answer the questions at the end of each section.
Speed and Velocity
Centripetal Force and Inertia
No Such thing as Centrifugal forces!
Lesson 2- Applying uniform circular motion
**Newton's 2nd Law Revisted- just like our worksheet problems**
Roller Coasters (not really covered but this is cool)
Athletics (not really covered but very applicable to your life)
Lesson 3- Universal Gravitation
Universal Gravitation Start here and read the rest of Lesson 3.
Notes to help you
(Some of these are power points and some are adobe pdf files.)
Universal Gravitation and Central Net Force 2017
Neat review video of major concepts of circular motion
Uniform Circular Motion Interactive
An awesome interactive and reinforcement of our paradigm lab on circular motion
A nice overview of a car going through a curve and then a banked curve. Though we won't get in to the math of banked curves, which is included here, we will cover the math of an object undergoing uniform circular motion (no trig).
