## Study Notes

### Circular Motion

• Uniform circular motion describes the motion of an object moving in a circle at a constant speed.
• Centripetal acceleration is the inward acceleration experienced by an object moving in a circle, directed towards the center of the circle.

### Angular Displacement and Velocity

• Angular displacement quantifies the angle through which an object has rotated, typically measured in radians.
• Angular velocity is defined as the time rate of change of angular displacement, indicating how fast an object rotates around an axis.

### Relative Velocity

• Relative velocity refers to the speed and direction of an object as observed from another moving object, highlighting the relationship between their velocities.

### Angle of Rotation

• The angle turned by a body moving in a circle from a reference line is known as the angular displacement relative to that line.

### Angular Acceleration

• Angular acceleration is the rate of change of angular velocity over time, indicating how quickly an object's rotational speed is changing.

### Projectile Motion

• Projectile motion involves an object that moves through the air under the influence of gravity, typically following a curved path.
• The trajectory describes the path taken by a projectile, often shaped like a parabola due to gravitational influences.

### Dimensions of Motion

• In projectile motion, the object moves in two dimensions: horizontal and vertical, allowing for independent motion analysis.

### Independence of Motions

• The principle of physical independence states that the horizontal and vertical motions of a projectile can be analyzed separately, simplifying the study of its motion.

### Resolving Projectile Velocity

• Projectile velocity can be resolved into two components: horizontal and vertical, enabling easier calculations of motion effects in each dimension.

### Type of Motion

• Circular motion is characterized as rotational motion, where objects move around a central point or axis, maintaining a constant distance from that point.
