Circular Motion and Rotation

Study Guidelines  What is to be accomplished?

1.  Distinguish between rotate and revolve.

2.  Describe rotational speed.

3.  Give examples of centripetal force.

4. Describe the motion of an object if the centripetal force acting on it ceases.

5.  Explain why centrifugal force is fictitious.

6.  Describe how a simulated gravitational acceleration can be produced.

7.  Describe center of mass.

8.  Describe center of gravity.

9.  Describe how to predict whether an object will topple.

10.  Distinguish among stable equilibrium, unstable equilibrium, and neutral equilibrium.

11.  Define and describe torque.

12.  Describe the condition required for one torque to balance another.

13.  Given the location of the center of gravity of an object and the position and direction of the forces on it, tell whether the forces will produce rotation.

 P.1.8 Describe the nature of centripetal force and centripetal acceleration (including the formula a = v2/r), and use these ideas to predict the motion of an object.
