Lecture# Circular motion: Concepts and Calculations

Description

This lecture covers the fundamental concepts of circular motion, including centripetal acceleration, centripetal force, and the relationship between velocity and acceleration in polar, cylindrical, and spherical coordinate systems. It also delves into the importance of friction in auto racing and the physics behind Formula 1 tire width. The instructor explains how to derive expressions for velocity and acceleration in cylindrical coordinates, as well as the cross product and its applications in circular motion. The lecture concludes with a summary of uniform circular motion and a demonstration of a ball on a rotating slide.
