# Physics 207: Lecture 2 Notes Lecture 6 Todays Goals (Ch 4.4-6) Discuss uniform and non-uniform circular motion Circular Motion Centripetal (or radial) acceleration (direction of v changes) Tangential acceleration (magnitude of v changes) Relative motion and reference frames 1st Exam (Chapters 1-4, ~10 Multiple choice, 4 short answer) Where: 2103, 2223 & 2241 Chamberlin Hall (& quiet room) When: Monday, February 20 7:15-8:45 PM Format: Closed book, one 8 x11 sheet, hand written Electronics: Any calculator is okay but no web/cell access Quiet room: Test anxiety, special accommodations, etc. Conflicts: E-mail for approval (on or before Monday, Feb 12th) , academic/UW athletic reasons only Physics 201: Lecture 6, Pg 1 Circular Motion is common so specialized terms Angular position (CCW + CW -) Radius is r Arc distance s = r & ds = r d Tangential velocity vt = ds /dt Angular velocity, d/dt (CCW + CW -) s

Again Uniform circular motion involves only changes in the direction of the velocity vector Acceleration is perpendicular to the trajectory at any point, acceleration is only in the radial direction. v Centripetal/radial Acceleration ac -ac = ar = -v2/r r Circular motion involves continuous radial acceleration Physics 201: Lecture 6, Pg 8 Mass-based separation with a centrifuge Before After How many gs (1 g is ~10 m/s2)? |ar |= vt2 / r = 2 r f = 6000 rpm = 100 rev. per second is typical with r = 0.10 m

Total acceleration A stunt plane is performing a loop-the-loop of radius 100 m while accelerating (see figure). When its nose is pointed directly down, the speed of the plane is 50 m/s and the acceleration, tangent to the path, is 2g (i.e., 20 m/s 2). What is magnitude of the total acceleration? In x,y vector notation, what is the total acceleration? j 2 at 20 m/s j 2 2 2 i 2 ar v / r m/s i 50 / 100 m/s i

v E2. A hockey puck slides off the edge of a horizontal table, just at the instant it leaves the table, how much of the acceleration from gravity goes to changing its speed? A. All of it B. Most of it a g j v a C. Half of it radial acceleration D. None of it Physics 201: Lecture 6, Pg 16 v Relative Motion and reference frames? If you are moving relative to another person do you see the same physics?

Two observers moving relative to each other generally do not agree on the outcome of an experiment (path) For example, observers A and B below see different paths for the ball Physics 201: Lecture 6, Pg 17 Reading Assignment Chapter 5.1-6 Physics 201: Lecture 6, Pg 18
