I: Circular Motion

It is expected that students will demonstrate an ability to describe and apply the concepts of uniform circular motion to real-world situations.

It is expected that students will:

I1.  describe the velocity of an object moving in uniform circular motion at any point in that motion
I2.  demonstrate that the acceleration of an object may result in a change in direction with no change in speed
I3.  define centripetal acceleration and centripetal force
I4.  solve problems involving:

I5.  analyze and describe the forces acting on common objects in circular motion
