This is part of the HSC Physics Syllabus Module 5: Advanced Mechanics.
Let’s analyse the forces acting on an object executing uniform circular motion. Some situations in which we can find uniform circular motion include:
- Cars moving around horizontal circular bends
- A mass on a string
- Objects on banked tracks
Let’s check out an example of circulation motion on a banked curve.
Mass on a string
Here is an example of a mass on a string with a circular motion.
Examples of circular motion, banked curves and static friction
Finally, here’s examples on all of the three examples we considered above.
