Homework Help: PHYSICS - VERYYYY IMPORTANT!!!

Posted by Silvia on Sunday, January 14, 2007 at 2:20pm.

VERY IMPORTANT FOR A PHYSICS PRESENTATION.. PLEASE HELP & EXPLAIN CLEARLY??? THANKS SO MUCH!


(a) why is the centripetal force neede to keep a body moving in a circular path?

(b) In what direction does a centripetal force accelerate the body on whic it acts??

(c) Upon what threee factors does the centripetal force keeping a body moving in a circular path depend?

You are mistaken in your beliefs, I think. Centriptal Force is a FORCE Requirement, not a physical force. Any number of forces can be imposed to supply the required centripetal force.
