Uniform Circular Motion
Uniform Circular Motion:
Movement at constant speed
around a circle of radius, r.
Period (T)

If the particle velocity changes,
there is
tangential acceleration,a

.
If a
t
is constant, 1D kinematic
equations may be applied.
Nonuniform
Circular Motion
For non

uniform circular
motion:
•
the acceleration vector
no longer points
towards the center of
the circle.
•
a
t
can be positive (ccw)
or negative (cw) but a

is
always positive.
