written by David Stern
This lesson plan provides an approach to teaching circular motion. It covers uniform circular motion, and the relation of its frequency with the peripheral velocity v, the radius of the circle R, and the rotation period T. The topic of centripetal acceleration is included. This lesson plan is connected to textual resources on the topic. This lesson is part of a large site, "From Stargazers to Starships" that introduces physics through space science and an historical perspective.
