									     Centripetal Force

                 Objectives
 Explain what is meant by centripetal force.
Select and apply the equation for centripetal
           force: F = ma = mv2/r.
                 Outcomes
• Outcomes
  You MUST ALL Be able to define Centripetal
  force as the force that acts towards the centre
  of a circular path; apply Newton’s 2nd Law to
  equations for centripetal acceleration to get
  equation for centripetal force and apply the
  equations for centripetal force to solve
  problems correctly for different situations.
• MOST of you SHOULD Be able to rearrange
  the equation for centripetal force.
