Circular motion and gravitation

IB Physics: Circular motion and gravitation

This is the shortest topic in the IB Physics course, and can be a nice way to bridge Mechanics and Fields if teaching a class between two teachers. Circular motion introduces rotational motion, but at this stage no consideration of angular acceleration is required. The most important thing to stress is that a centripetal force is the resultant force towards the centre of the circle, and not an additional force in its...
