Mission CG5: Mathematical Analysis of Circular Motion


Mission CG5 consists of eight physical situations involving the motion of an object in a circle. You will have to combine an understanding of force types, free-body diagrams, and Fnet = m•a to analyze the situation. The mission consists of 32 questions organized into 8 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to utilize Newton's laws to analyze the motion of an object moving in a horizontal circle and to determine the values of the acceleration, net force and individual forces.
  • The student should be able utilize Newton's laws to analyze the motion of an object moving in a vertical circle and to determine the values of the acceleration, net force and individual forces.
