IB Physics: Activity: Circular motion

In this example we will consider the well known example of the motion of a ball moving in a circle on the end of a string, however to make the forces simpler we will consider this in space.To describe this motion we will define some new terms.Time period (T) = time for one complete circle - unit: sFrequency (f) = number of complete circles per second (1/T) - unit: HzAngular displacement (θ) = angle swept out in radians...
