The motion of a particle along the circumference of a circle is called the circular motion. The distance of the particle from the center remains fixed while the direction changes continuously. Therefore, Circular motion is a perfect example of accelerated motion. This motion can be uniform as well as non-uniform.
In a uniform circular motion, while the speed of the particle remains fixed, velocity is not constant. Non-uniform circular motion is more complicated, and both the speed and velocity changes with time.
Below we mention some Examples of Circular motion.
Examples of Circular Motion
- Revolution of the Earth and all the planets around the Sun.
- The motion of the moon and all artificial satellites moving around the earth.
- A windmill converts the wind’s energy into rotational energy.
- In a centrifuge, we use a circular motion to separate fluids, gases, or liquid based on their density.
- Rotating wheel of a bicycle.
- Athletes running on circular race tracks. This is an example of non-uniform circular motion.
- The motion of a merry-go-round.
- The motion of a spinning top.
- The spinning of a ceiling fan.
- Whirling of a stone tied in your finger.
