Circular Motion : Circular Motion Examples: Planets, atoms, cars on curves, CD-ROM’s, propellers, etc.
Rotational Kinematics : Rotational Kinematics How do we describe an object moving in a circle?
Slide 3: Measure angles relative to reference line: Δθ Θ = 00 Θ = 600
Express Angles in Radians : Express Angles in Radians 1 revolution = 3600
3600 = 2π radians
1 radian = 57.30 Position in circular motion is expressed as an angle, preferably in radians. ‘x’ in linear motion, ‘θ’ in circular motion.
Example : Example A fan blade, with a diameter of 1 m, is rotating at 1 revolution every second. Through what angle does the tip of the blade turn in 0.3 seconds?
1 rev in 1 second
0.5 rev in 0.5 sec
0.3 rev in 0.3 sec, so
0.3 rev = 1080 = 1.88 radians
Speed in Circular Motion : Speed in Circular Motion Since we’re not using ‘x’ to measure position, we can’t define speed as Δx/Δt.
But, since ‘θ’ replaces ‘x’, why not define angular speed by
Δθ/Δt = (θf – θo)/(tf – to)
This is called angular speed and is given the symbol (omega), ω.
ω = Δθ/Δt
In units of radians/second, i.e. rad/s.
Angular Velocity : Angular Velocity ω = Δθ/Δt
Connection between Linear and Circular Motion : Connection between Linear and Circular Motion q = x/r
= v/r
a = a/r
Example : Example What is the angular speed of a 33 1/3 rpm record?
ω =33.33 rev/min = 33.33 rev/60 sec
ω = 33.33 ( 2 π rad)/60 s = 3.49 rad/s
Acceleration in Circular Motion : Acceleration in Circular Motion Consider your rotating car tires as you accelerate from 25 mph to 55 mph. What is happening to the rotational speed of the tires? R = 33 cm. V = 11 m/s V=24.5 m/s ωo ωf
Linear and Angular Connection : Linear and Angular Connection ω = v/r
So, ωo = (11 m/s)/0.33 m = 33 rad/s
And ωf = (24.5 m/s)/0.33 m = 73.5 rad/s.
Therefore the change in angular speed,
ωf – ωo = 40.5 rad/s = Δ ω
Angular Acceleration : Angular Acceleration When you have changing angular speeds, this means the object has an angular acceleration, α (alpha), which is calculated by
α =Δ ω/Δt
In units of radians/second2 = rad/s2
Characterizing Circular Motion : Characterizing Circular Motion Radius, r
Angular position, θ
Angular displacement, Δθ
Angular speed, ω=Δθ/Δt
Angular acceleration, α=Δω/Δt
Kinematics of Circular Motion : Kinematics of Circular Motion ω=Δθ/Δt
α=Δω/Δt
ωave=(ωf + ωo)/2
Θ = ωavet
ωf= ωo +αt
Θ = Θo + ωot + ½ αt2
ωf2 = ωo2 + 2αΔθ
Kinematics Example : Kinematics Example A flywheel of a machine is rotating at 12 rev/s. Through what angle will the wheel be displaced from its original position after 5 seconds?
Angular speed, ω = 12 rev/s = 75 rad/s
Θ = ωavet = 75 rad/s * 5 s = 375 rad
= 2148750. 59.6875 revolutions, so .6875 revolutions from start position = 247o.
Slide 16: A turntable revolves at 33 1/3 rpm. It is shut off and slow to a stop in 6.3 seconds. What is the angular acceleration?
Through what angle did it turn as it slow to a stop? ωf=0, ωo = 33.33 rpm =3.49 rad/s,
t = 6.3 s
ωf= ωo +αt
Θ = Θo + ωot + ½ αt2

FNET = ma
a is a vector defined by
a = Δv/Δt
Δv = vf – vo
For circular motion the speeds are the same, but the directions aren’t. MOON EARTH
Slide 21: Dynamics of Rotation MOON EARTH -vo vf Δv= vf-vo Let’s visually examine the change in velocity
Slide 22: Dynamics of Rotation MOON EARTH vo vf Δv= vf-vo So, a Δv exists because the direction is changing, not the magnitude. How do we find the acceleration?
Dv/v = Dr/r
Dv/v = vDt/r
Dv/Dt = v2/r
ac = v2/r
Slide 23: Dynamics of Rotation MOON EARTH The acceleration toward the center is called ‘centripetal’ acceleration, ac, given by
ac = v2/R
In magnitude and directed toward center. R v v

Slide 27: ULG-two objects of given masses separated by known distance exert a gravitational force of attraction on each other whose size is determined from
F =GMm/R2
You are sitting next to a person whose mass is 55 kg. Your mass is 75 kg. What is the force of attraction between you if you are 0.8 m apart (center to center)?
F =(6.67 x 10-11Nm2/kg2)(75kg)(55kg)/(0.8m)2
F=0.00000043 N = 0.43 microNewtons
How do we know the mass of the Earth? : How do we know the mass of the Earth? Using the ULG,
F =GMm/R2
And 2nd Law,
F = mv2/R,
Combine,
GMm/R2 = mv2/R
M = v2R/G
M = (ωR)2R/G
M = ω2R3/G
Slide 29: M = ω2R3/G
R = 380,000,000 m
ω = 2π rad /27.3 days =2.664 x 10-6 rad/s
So, M = (2.664 x 10-6 rad/s)2(380,000,000 m)3/(6.67 x 10-11 Nm2/kg2)
M = 5.84 x 1024 kg.
True value 5.98 x 1024 kg.

Slide 34: A car moving at 25 m/s rounds a curve of radius 100 m and is just on the verge of slipping. So if that is the fastest that it can round this curve, what is the maximum speed it can travel on a curve of radius 300 m?
In both cases the force keeping that car from slipping will be the same, i.e. static friction. So, F = mv2/R is the equation we will apply to each case.
v12/R1 = v2 2/R2
v2 = v1(R2/R1)1/2

M = 0.5 kg, R = 1.0 m, F(max) = 350 N
F = mv2/R
V = ( FR/m)1/2 = (350*1.0/0.5)1/2 = 26.5 m/s
Next Example
Slide 36: A car goes around a flat curve of radius 50 m at a speed of 14 m/s. What must be the minimum coefficient of friction between the tires and the road for the car to make the turn?
V = 14 m/s, R = 50 m.
F = mv2/R and f = µN = µmg, so
µmg = mv2/R
µ = v2/gR
= (14 m/s)2/(9.8 m/s2*50m)
µ =0.4
