That being said, there’s actually quite a simple formula for circular velocity on screen where it is **equal to the square root of G**, the gravitational constant of 6.67 X 10 ^-11 m^3/s^2kg, multiplied by M, the mass of the larger (central) object in kilograms, and divided by the radius, R, of the orbit in meters.

Uniform circular motion can be described as **the motion of an object in a circle at a constant speed**. As an object moves in a circle, it is constantly changing its direction. At all instances, the object is moving tangent to the circle. … An object undergoing uniform circular motion is moving with a constant speed.

The correct answer is **centripetal force**. In a free body diagram, this is the force that would be directed towards the center of the circular path; in circular motion, acceleration and net force are always in this direction.

l) A ship streaming on a straight course at a constant speed. m) Electrons revolving around the nucleus, inside a atom, due to coulombic force. **Non-Uniform Circular Motion** – When a motion of an object denotes changes in the speed of the particle moving along the circular path, it is called non-uniform circular motion.

Uniform circular motion is a specific type of motion in which an object travels in a circle with a constant speed. For example, any **point on a propeller spinning at a constant rate is** executing uniform circular motion. Other examples are the second, minute, and hour hands of a watch.

The **movement of a body following a circular path** is called a circular motion. Now, the motion of a body moving with constant speed along a circular path is called Uniform Circular Motion. Here, the speed is constant but the velocity changes.

When a stone tied to one end of a string is whirled horizontally, there is an inward force exerted by the string on the stone called tension. This force provides necessary centripetal force for circular motion.

Circular motion requires **a net inward or “centripetal” force**. Without a net centripetal force

Centripetal acceleration, **the acceleration of a body traversing a circular path**. Because velocity is a vector quantity (that is, it has both a magnitude, the speed, and a direction), when a body travels on a circular path, its direction constantly changes and thus its velocity changes, producing an acceleration.

The reason is simple. Speed is the time rate at which an object is moving along a path, while velocity is **the rate and direction of an object’s movement**. Put another way, speed is a scalar value, while velocity is a vector.

Uniform circular motion is a specific type of motion in which an object travels in a circle with a constant speed. For example, **any point on a propeller spinning at a constant rate** is executing uniform circular motion. Other examples are the second, minute, and hour hands of a watch.

An electron moving perpendicular to the magnetic field is an example of circular motion. Non-uniform circular motion implies the movement of an object along a circular path with variable speed. Uniform circular motion implies the movement of an object along a circular path with **constant speed**.

In physics, circular motion is a movement of an object along the circumference of a circle or rotation along a circular path. It **can be uniform, with constant angular rate of rotation and constant speed, or non-uniform with a changing rate of rotation**.
