** Previous:** Circular Motion and the

In this Chapter, the quantities needed to describe circular motion will be defined. These include angular velocity, angular acceleration, tangential velocity and acceleration and, centripetal acceleration. We will also learn about Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation and apply it to a couple of examples involving circular orbits.
