What is an example of centripetal force?
Here is a diagram showing the vectors of velocity and acceleration acting upon an object in circular motion. Add a vector showing the Centripetal Force and label it "F".
What are some real-world examples of objects that move in a circular path?
What are the units for measuring centripetal force?
What might happen to an object moving in a circular path if the centripetal force was decreased?
