sir please explain me about the circular motion of a body?
Asked by varunvenu | 21st Nov, 2009, 09:37: PM
The circular motion of a body is a motion of the body along the circumference of a circle. Since the direction of motion of the object changes, it's accelerated motion, and the acceleration acts towards the centre of the circle and called centripetal accleration.
For example, a stone tied to a string and whirled in a circle.
The distance travelled is equal to the arc length of the circle travelled.
