We can find many examples of circular motion around us, e.g. bicycles and cars going round a corner and the Moon orbiting around the Earth.

In the first part of this topic, we will describe the motion of objects moving in a circular path; in the later part, we will consider what causes such circular motion.

This course is based on the GCE A level H2 Physics syllabus 9749.
