Genaral information on “Circular motion”
The same rules apply for the acceleration, the distance and the velocity on the circular path that the one for a linear accelerated motion.
More informations – formulas in compare:
|linear motion||circular motion|
|s = ½ · a · t2||φ = ½ · α · t2|
|s = ½ v · t||φ = ½ ·ω ·t|
|v = a* t||ω = α · t|
|v = a √ ( 2 · s / a)||ω = α √ ( 2 · s / α )|
|s||distance on the circular path||m|
|v||velocity on circular path||ms –1|
|a||acceleration on circular path||ms-2|
|φ||angle of rotation||rad|
|ω||angular speed||rad s-1|
|α||acceleration of rotation||rad s-2|
|r||radius of circular path||m|
