Angular Velocity

>Definition of angular displacement, q

q = r = radius, s = linear displacement/perimeter

Unit: radian

> Definition for angular velocity

The rate of change of angular displacement for a circular motion.

Unit: Radians per second

> Definition of period, T

The time taken for the particle to complete a circle of the circular motion. For a

complete cycle, where q = 2p radians

Other information

Example 1

What angle in degree has a car travelled around a circular track if the track has

a radius of 100 m and distance by the car is 300 m?

Angular displacement,

Example 2

For a point on the circumference (radius = 10 cm) which move through (from

beginning to the end) the circle in 60 s. calculate:

(a) angular velocity of the circumference.

(b) linear speed in m/s.

Centripetal Acceleration

> Definition

Centripetal acceleration is the acceleration where the direction of the velocity

change Dv is, perpendicular to the direction of v and is directed towards the

centre of the circle.

> Formula

Centripetal Acceleration, a = vw

= rw

because of Centripetal Acceleration, there will be centripetal force F

Example 3

A 900 g object is whirled in a circle at the end of a string. If the string is 0.3 m

long and the force in the string is 6.4 N, what is the speed of the object?

The force acting on an object in circular motion is:

so

Example 4

A rope is wound automatically by a machine at a constant angular velocity. The

radius of the roller increases at a steady rate.

Sketch a graph to show:

(a) The variation of speed v of rope with radius, r.

(b) Centripetal force F on the rope at difference distance r from the centre

rotation.

Example 5

What is the maximum speed that a car can cross a humpbacked bridge and

just remain in contact with it? The radius of the bridge is 20 m.

Push of bridge on car wheels = P

Weight of car = W

The resultant force F = W P

This resultant force is the centripetal force.

Centripetal Force

> Definition

The force on a body moving in a circle and always directed towards the centre

O of the circle.

Formula F= ma

F = = mv w = mrw

Horizontal circle

Tension, T =

v = speed of the particle

r = radius of the circle

Other information

When the speed increases gradually, the tension in the string increases

until the braking tension is attained.

Then the object continues the motion in straight line with uniform speed at

the direction tangential to the circle. (First Newtons Law)

Vertical Circle

Tension, T = + mg cos q

Tension maximum Tension minimum

When q = 0,

T is maximum

Tension, T = + mg

When q = p

T is minimum

Tension, T = -mg

To maintain the movement at vertical circle:.

T 0

mg

v -The minimum velocity of the object at the highest point.

Other information

The object remains without dropping because the centripetal force on the

object is greater than the weight of the object.

W

Example 6

Plane flying in a uniform horizontal circle at constant speed and height,

(A) has no resultant force acting on it.

(B) experiences a resultant force acting away from the centre of the circle.

(C) experiences a resultant force acting towards the centre of the circle.

(D) experiences an increasing force acting towards the centre of the circle.

Objects moving with uniform circular motion experience a resultant force acting

towards the centre of the circle. It is called the centripetal force.

Example 7

An object is whirled in uniform circular motion in a vertical circle. If the weight of

the object is W the tension in the string is T. what is the centripetal Force. F, at

the moment that the object passes through the bottom point of the circle.

Value of the centripetal force must remain constant at all points in the circle if

the motion of the object is uniform circular motion.

At the bottom of the circle the weight of the object is acting down and the

tension in the string I acting up. The resultant of these two forces must be the

centripetal force. Add the two forces (which are vectors, of course) and you get:

F

c

= T-W

This means that the tension in the string has to be large enough to overcome

the weight of the object and also provide the centripetal force.

Note that at the top of the circle both the tension and the weight act down.

Because the two forces act in the same direction, the tension must be smaller

than it is at the bottom if the resultant they produce (the centripetal force) is to

be the same.

Example 8

Which of the following statements is correct for an object moving with uniform

horizontal circular motion?

(A) The speed of the object varies but the velocity is constant.

(B) The kinetic energy of the object varies but its momentum is constant. 1

(C) The momentum of the object varies but its speed is constant. 1

(D) The linear velocity of the object varies but its momentum is constant. I

The only answer to satisfy these conditions is C.

It an object is travelling in a circle, its direction is always changing, so no vector

quantities can remain constant e.g. velocity or momentum. Scalar quantities

can remain constant, however e.g. 1 speed and kinetic energy.

Note that although the value of acceleration remains the same and it is always

towards the centre of the circle, the direction of the acceleration is always

changing.

Example 9

An object of mass 2 kg is attached to the end of a string length 1 m and whirled

in a vertical circle at a linear speed of 4 ms

-1

. Find the tension in the string at

the top and the bottom of the circle.

Example 10

A pilot of mass 60 kg flies in a vertical circle of radius 1 km at a speed of 150

m/s. What is the push of the seat on the pilot at the top of his flight?

This method can be used to calculate the value of g but is not suitable

because:

(i) It is difficult to measure accurately the angle q.

(ii) It is hard to fix q at a constant value when measuring the period T.

Motion of a motorcyclist round a curved track

F =

The force F produces a moment in the clockwise direction. So, to prevent from

toppling over, the person has to bend inwards so that the weight mg and the

reaction R form a couple to balance the moment produced by F.

a = distance

Clockwise moment = anticlockwise moment

F x h = mga

x F = mga

The angle of q increases if:

(a) The speed v increases. (b) The radius, r of the track is small.

v is the maximum speed of the car to round the curved track without

overturning. The speed can be increased when:

(a) The radius r of the circular track is bigger.

(b) The centre of gravity G of the car is lower, h is smaller.

(c) The wheel base is bigger.

Example 11

A bicycle and rider of total mass 120kg are rounding a bend of radius 20m. The

maximum sideways frictional force available is 600N. Find the greatest linear

speed of the bike before it will skid out of the bend.

Solution

F =ma

Gives : 600N = 120 x

V = 10 ms

Example 12

Pendulum moves in a horizontal circle at an

angle of 60 to the horizontal as shown. Calculate the speed at which it must

move to maintain this angle.

Solution

T-tension in the rope W the weight of the mass

Resolve the tension vertically and horizontally

T sin 60

T cos 60

(i ) Since the pendulum is not moving up or down the vertical forces must be

equal.

T cos 60 = mg 1

(ii)The centripetal force is given by the force acting towards the centre of the

circle. 2

T sin 60 = . 2

Its all rather neat divide 2 by..1

v=2.94 ms -1

Hence speed of the pendulum is 2.9 ms

in a horizontal circle of

radius 25 km. A plumb line, attached to the roof of the cabin is inclined at an

angle q to the vertical while the aircraft is turning.

(a) What is the centripetal acceleration of the aircraft?

(b) Calculate the angle q.
