Title: Physics Classroom: Circular Motion
Url: http://www.physicsclassroom.com/Class/circles/U6L1a.cfm
Creator: Henderson, Tom
Publisher: Physics Classroom
Description: This resource guides the user through characteristics of circular motion. The same concepts and principles used to describe the motion of an object can also be used to describe and explain the motion of objects in circular pathways. This tutorial is broken into five sections addressing: the mechanics of circular motion, centripetal force, algebraic and trigonometric problems and solutions, and a full chapter that debunks the centrifugal "force" misconception. The interactive problems use diagrams and force vectors to help students visualize how vector components affect the way circular motion is characterized.
