Measures of Circular Motion
Physicists become Olympians in a competition using centripetal force. They ride a bicycle to comprehend relationships between linear and rotational motion. If you have an old-fashioned record player, it can be used to help pupils describe rotation and revolution.

You can make sure your physicists' heads are not spinning when studying circular motion by assigning this worksheet as homework. In it, they describe tangential and rotational speed, define centripetal force, explain why centrifugal force is considered imaginary, and then solve five practical problems.

Vertical Circular Motion
In this vertical circular motion worksheet, students answer 16 questions about given diagrams showing masses rotating in circular motion. Students find tension in strings, they find the magnitude of the critical velocity, they find normal forces acting on objects and they determine the motion of objects after a break in the string holding the object.

Unit VIII Worksheet 5: Circular Motion
Seven problems send physics stars out of this world! Challenge learners to calculate centripetal force, time to complete revolutions, circular speed, and acceleration. They also are asked to explain scenarios and draw a force diagram for satellite orbits.

Students research physical science by completing worksheets. In this gravity lesson, students read assigned text regarding the rotation of Earth and the gravitational force caused by the speed of which it rotates. Students complete a Frayer model regarding the information they read and conduct a class discussion.
