Eighth graders identify the forces involved in circular motion. In this physics activity, 8th graders examine centripetal force and inertia by participating in teacher led demos. They give real world application of circular motion.
In this non-uniform circular motion worksheet, students solve five problems including writing equations of motion and showing modifications, answering questions about velocity, tangential acceleration, centripetal acceleration and angular acceleration.
Go around and around in your physics class with this presentation on circular motion. Diagrams bring the definition to life. Formulas for angular acceleration, centripetal force, gravitation, and potential in a radial field are given. This comprehensive set of slides concludes with an example problem.
In this physics 240: 12, worksheet students calculate the time, velocity, distance for the word problems given. Students apply concepts of uniform circular motion to solve each problem provided.
In this physics 240:16 worksheet, students use their knowledge of non-uniform circular motion with a constant to solve the problems provided.
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. Classic pendulums and a classroom bowling ball pendulum are incorporated to help learners make connections. This activity-filled unit explores circular motion from every aspect, and the lesson plan write-up covers the details from every aspect as well!
Students demonstrate direction of velocity of an object in circular motion. They discuss the mathematical formula, and demonstrate the formula using a string, rubber stopper and a target.
In this circular motion activity, students calculate tangential velocity, angular velocity, and centripetal force. This activity has 6 problems to solve.
Students investigate circular motion in two different activities. In the first, students observe the path of a rolling marble on a paper plate. In the second, students play a game of catch using a tennis ball inside a plastic bag. Students analyze their results individually.
High schoolers explore uniform circular motion, and the relation of its frequency of N revolutions/sec with the peripheral velocity v and with the rotation period T, and the "centripetal acceleration" of an object.
In this circular motion worksheet, students solve six problems including finding centripetal acceleration of rotating objects, finding direction of acceleration of objects and finding tension force on strings attached to revolving objects.
In this worksheet learners will find the value of rotation for a given circular motion in the Cartesian plane. There are 9 problems, some with multiple parts, answers are provided.
In this physics 240: 14 worksheet, learners calculate the tangential velocity for several word problems given. Students determine the centripetal force for the scenario described.
Young scholars investigate circular motion and the relation between force and velocity. For this circular motion lesson plan, students build an apparatus to whirl a stopper in circular motion around a tube. They suspend washers with measured masses at the bottom and vary the number of washers. They collect data and analyze their results to see the relationship between force and velocity with circular motion.
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. Formatting is neat and user-friendly.
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.
In this vertical circular motion worksheet, students solve 14 problems related to the tension in strings, the velocity of the objects and the motion of the objects.
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. This is a nice, neat, and pertinent worksheet to assign as homework for your physics class.
In this physics 16 worksheet, students solve each problem using their knowledge of non-uniform circular motion. Students use the formulas to answer all parts of the questions.
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.
