Circular motion and gravity

IB Physics: Circular motion and gravity

In this topic we will consider another form of oscillatory motion: that of objects moving in a circle. For objects moving horizontally or in space, this is usually straightforward to model with the same forces acting throughout. However, vertical circles involve changing sizes of relative forces (and often speed) due to the gravitational force. You will then consider forces that act between masses more generally, and...
