Circular motion by its definition means object(s) moving in a circle. When it comes to understand this concept in a physics point of view, there are a lot of factors that determine this motion. These chracteristics include: magnitude and direction of the position r and velocity vector vt, centripetal acceleration a, period T, frequency f, angular speed w, angular displacement q, angle etc.. An object in circular motion has position vector with constant magnitude but constantly changing directions. We know that the derivative of position is velocity and therefore the velocity vector constantly changes as well. The velocity in circular motion in particular is the tangential velocity that is always tangent to the track of the motion. Other relations in the circular motion include T=1/f=2pi/w, ?=w*t, and a=w^2*r=v*w=v^2/r. Introduction: Part IPart I of the lab basically discusses the concept of the circular motion., including all the variables the circular motion involves, and their relationships among each other. The real life application of circular motion includes amusement park ride, rotating fluids, curved bank and more. To understand circular motion well, we have to have good knowledge about the vectors involved. Because the directions of posi
