  • Circular Motion
    • Express angular displacement in radians and in degrees and convert between those units
    • Explain the concept of angular velocity
    • Use the relationships     v = w r and         T = 2    / w
    • Derive & use the expressions for centripetal acceleration     a = v / r               & a = r w
    • Explain that a resultant force (centripetal force) is required to produce and maintain circular motion.
    • Use the expression for centripetal force                  F = ma = m v / r
