1 Centripetal force keeps an object in circular motion. Which moves faster on a merry-go-round, a horse near the outside rail or one near the inside rail? While a hamster rotates its cage about an axis, does the hamster rotate or does it revolve about the same axis? We begin to answer these questions by discussing the difference between rotation and revolution Rotation and Revolution Two types of circular motion are rotation and revolution Rotation and Revolution An axis is the straight line around which rotation takes place. When an object turns about an internal axis that is, an axis located within the body of the object the motion is called rotation, or spin. When an object turns about an external axis, the motion is called revolution Rotation and Revolution The Ferris wheel turns about an axis. The Ferris wheel rotates, while the riders revolve about its axis Rotation and Revolution Earth undergoes both types of rotational motion. It revolves around the sun once every 365 ¼ days. It rotates around an axis passing through its geographical poles once every 24 hours. 1

2 10.1 Rotation and Revolution What are two types of circular motion? Tangential speed depends on rotational speed and the distance from the axis of rotation. The turntable rotates around its axis while a ladybug sitting at its edge revolves around the same axis. Which part of the turntable moves faster the outer part where the ladybug sits or a part near the orange center? It depends on whether you are talking about linear speed or rotational speed. Types of Speed Linear speed is the distance traveled per unit of time. A point on the outer edge of the turntable travels a greater distance in one rotation than a point near the center. The linear speed is greater on the outer edge of a rotating object than it is closer to the axis. The speed of something moving along a circular path can be called tangential speed because the direction of motion is always tangent to the circle. Rotational speed (sometimes called angular speed) is the number of rotations per unit of time. All parts of the rigid turntable rotate about the axis in the same amount of time. All parts have the same rate of rotation, or the same number of rotations per unit of time. It is common to express rotational speed in revolutions per minute (RPM). 2

3 All parts of the turntable rotate at the same rotational speed. a. A point farther away from the center travels a longer path in the same time and therefore has a greater tangential speed. All parts of the turntable rotate at the same rotational speed. a. A point farther away from the center travels a longer path in the same time and therefore has a greater tangential speed. b. A ladybug sitting twice as far from the center moves twice as fast. Tangential and Rotational Speed Tangential speed and rotational speed are related. Tangential speed is directly proportional to the rotational speed and the radial distance from the axis of rotation. Tangential speed ~ radial distance rotational speed In symbol form, v ~ r where v is tangential speed and (pronounced oh MAY guh) is rotational speed. You move faster if the rate of rotation increases (bigger ). ) You also move faster if you are farther from the axis (bigger r). At the axis of the rotating platform, you have no tangential speed, but you do have rotational speed. You rotate in one place. As you move away from the center, your tangential speed increases while your rotational speed stays the same. Move out twice as far from the center, and you have twice the tangential speed. think! At an amusement park, you and a friend sit on a large rotating disk. You sit at the edge and have a rotational speed of 4 RPM and a linear speed of 6 m/s. Your friend sits halfway to the center. What is her rotational speed? What is her linear speed? 3

4 think! At an amusement park, you and a friend sit on a large rotating disk. You sit at the edge and have a rotational speed of 4 RPM and a linear speed of 6 m/s. Your friend sits halfway to the center. What is her rotational speed? What is her linear speed? Railroad Train Wheels How do the wheels of a train stay on the tracks? The train wheels stay on the tracks because their rims are slightly tapered. Answer: Her rotational speed is also 4 RPM, and her linear speed is 3 m/s. A curved path occurs when a tapered cup rolls. The wider part of the cup travels a greater distance per revolution. A tapered cup rolls in a curve because the wide part of the cup rolls faster than the narrow part. Fasten a pair of cups together at their wide ends and roll the pair along a pair of parallel tracks. The cups will remain on the track. They will center themselves whenever they roll off center. A pair of cups fastened together will stay on the tracks as they roll. 4

5 When the pair rolls to the left of center, the wider part of the left cup rides on the left track while the narrow part of the right cup rides on the right track. This steers the pair toward the center. If it overshoots toward the right, the process repeats, this time toward the left, as the wheels tend to center themselves. The wheels of railroad trains are similarly tapered. This tapered shape is essential on the curves of railroad tracks. On any curve, the distance along the outer part is longer than the distance along the inner part. When a vehicle follows a curve, its outer wheels travel faster than its inner wheels. This is not a problem because the wheels roll independent of each other. For a train, however, pairs of wheels are firmly connected like the pair of fastened cups, so they rotate together. The tapered shape of railroad train wheels (shown exaggerated here) is essential on the curves of railroad tracks. When a train rounds a curve, the wheels have different linear speeds for the same rotational speed. When a train rounds a curve, the wheels have different linear speeds for the same rotational speed. think! Train wheels ride on a pair of tracks. For straight-line motion, both tracks are the same length. But which track is longer for a curve, the one on the outside or the one on the inside of the curve? 5

6 think! Train wheels ride on a pair of tracks. For straight-line motion, both tracks are the same length. But which track is longer for a curve, the one on the outside or the one on the inside of the curve? Answer: The outer track is longer just as a circle with a greater radius has a greater circumference. What is the relationship among tangential speed, rotational speed, and radial distance? The centripetal force on an object depends on the object s tangential speed, its mass, and the radius of its circular path. Velocity involves both speed and direction. When an object moves in a circle, even at constant speed, the object still undergoes acceleration because its direction is changing. This change in direction is due to a net force (otherwise the object would continue to go in a straight line). Any object moving in a circle undergoes an acceleration that is directed to the center of the circle a centripetal acceleration. Centripetal means toward the center. The force directed toward a fixed center that causes an object to follow a circular path is called a centripetal force. Examples of Centripetal Forces If you whirl a tin can on the end of a string, you must keep pulling on the string exerting a centripetal force. The string transmits the centripetal force, pulling the can from a straight-line path into a circular path. 6

7 The force exerted on a whirling can is toward the center. No outward force acts on the can. Centripetal forces can be exerted in a variety of ways. The string that holds the moon on its almost circular path, for example, is gravity. Electrical forces provide the centripetal force acting between an orbiting electron and the atomic nucleus in an atom. Anything that moves in a circular path is acted on by a centripetal force. Centripetal force is not a basic force of nature, but is the label given to any force that is directed toward a fixed center. If the motion is circular and executed at constant speed, this force acts at right angles (tangent) to the path of the moving object. Centripetal force holds a car in a curved path. a. For the car to go around a curve, there must be sufficient friction to provide the required centripetal force. Centripetal force holds a car in a curved path. a. For the car to go around a curve, there must be sufficient friction to provide the required centripetal force. b. If the force of friction is not great enough, skidding occurs. The clothes in a washing machine are forced into a circular path, but the water is not, and it flies off tangentially. 7

8 Calculating Centripetal Forces Greater speed and greater mass require greater centripetal force. Traveling in a circular path with a smaller radius of curvature requires a greater centripetal force. Adding Force Vectors A conical pendulum is a bob held in a circular path by a string attached above. This arrangement is called a conical pendulum because the string sweeps out a cone. Centripetal force, F c, is measured in newtons when m is expressed in kilograms, v in meters/second, and r in meters. The string of a conical pendulum sweeps out a cone. Only two forces act on the bob: mg, the force due to gravity, and T, tension in the string. Both are vectors. The vector T can be resolved into two perpendicular components, T x (horizontal), and T y (vertical). If vector T were replaced with forces represented by these component vectors, the bob would behave just as it does when it is supported only by T. The vector T can be resolved into a horizontal (T x ) component and a vertical (T y ) component. 8

9 Since the bob doesn t accelerate vertically, the net force in the vertical direction is zero. Therefore T y must be equal and opposite to mg. T x is the net force on the bob the centripetal force. Its magnitude is mv/r 2, where r is the radius of the circular path. Centripetal force keeps the vehicle in a circular path as it rounds a banked curve. Suppose the speed of the vehicle is such that the vehicle has no tendency to slide down the curve or up the curve. At that speed, friction plays no role in keeping the vehicle on the track. Only two forces act on the vehicle, one mg, and the other the normal force n (the support force of the surface). Note that n is resolved into n x and n y components. Again, n y is equal and opposite to mg, and n x is the centripetal force that keeps the vehicle in a circular path. Whenever you want to identify the centripetal force that acts on a circularly moving object, it will be the net force that acts exactly along the radial direction toward the center of the circular path. What factors affect the centripetal force acting on an object? The centrifugal-force effect is attributed not to any real force but to inertia the tendency of the moving body to follow a straight-line path. 9

10 Sometimes an outward force is also attributed to circular motion. This apparent outward force on a rotating or revolving body is called centrifugal force. Centrifugal means center-fleeing, or away from the center. When the string breaks, the whirling can moves in a straight line, tangent to not outward from the center of its circular path. In the case of the whirling can, it is a common misconception to state that a centrifugal force pulls outward on the can. In fact, when the string breaks the can goes off in a tangential straight-line path because no force acts on it. So when you swing a tin can in a circular path, there is no force pulling the can outward. Only the force from the string acts on the can to pull the can inward. The outward force is on the string, not on the can. The only force that is exerted on the whirling can (neglecting gravity) is directed toward the center of circular motion. This is a centripetal force. No outward force acts on the can. The can provides the centripetal force necessary to hold the ladybug in a circular path. The can presses against the bug s feet and provides the centripetal force that holds it in a circular path. The ladybug in turn presses against the floor of the can. Neglecting gravity, the only force exerted on the ladybug is the force of the can on its feet. From our outside stationary frame of reference, we see there is no centrifugal force exerted on the ladybug. 10

11 What causes the centrifugal-force force effect? Centrifugal force is an effect of rotation. It is not part of an interaction and therefore it cannot be a true force. From the reference frame of the ladybug inside the whirling can, the ladybug is being held to the bottom of the can by a force that is directed away from the center of circular motion. From a stationary frame of reference outside the whirling can, we see there is no centrifugal force acting on the ladybug inside the whirling can. However, we do see centripetal force acting on the can, producing circular motion. Nature seen from the reference frame of the rotating system is different. In the rotating frame of reference of the whirling can, both centripetal force (supplied by the can) and centrifugal force act on the ladybug. The centrifugal force appears as a force in its own right, as real as the pull of gravity. However, there is a fundamental difference between the gravity-like centrifugal force and actual gravitational force. Gravitational force is always an interaction between one mass and another. The gravity we feel is due to the interaction between our mass and the mass of Earth. 11

12 In a rotating reference frame the centrifugal force has no agent such as mass there is no interaction counterpart. For this reason, physicists refer to centrifugal force as a fictitious force, unlike gravitational, electromagnetic, and nuclear forces. Nevertheless, to observers who are in a rotating system, centrifugal force is very real. Just as gravity is ever present at Earth s surface, centrifugal force is ever present within a rotating system. think! A heavy iron ball is attached by a spring to a rotating platform, as shown in the sketch. Two observers, one in the rotating frame and one on the ground at rest, observe its motion. Which observer sees the ball being pulled outward, stretching the spring? Which observer sees the spring pulling the ball into circular motion? think! A heavy iron ball is attached by a spring to a rotating platform, as shown in the sketch. Two observers, one in the rotating frame and one on the ground at rest, observe its motion. Which observer sees the ball being pulled outward, stretching the spring? Which observer sees the spring pulling the ball into circular motion? Answer: The observer in the reference frame of the rotating platform states that centrifugal force pulls radially outward on the ball, which stretches the spring. The observer in the rest frame states that centripetal force supplied by the stretched spring pulls the ball into circular motion. Why is centrifugal force not considered a true force? (Only the observer in the rest frame can identify an action-reaction pair of forces; where action is spring-on-ball, reaction is ball-on-spring. The rotating observer can t identify a reaction counterpart to the centrifugal force because there isn t any.) 1.
