Description:

This web page describes motion of an object traveling in a circle. The need for centripetal force to maintain the object's acceleration is derived using algebra and the Pythagoras theorem. A related lesson plan is available. This is a part of "From Stargazers to Starships," an extensive web site on introductory physics and astronomy.
