This short course is a deeper dive into a branch of mechanics focused on gravitation and circular motion. It begins by covering all the ground rules of circular motion and why spinning objects are accelerating towards the centre of rotation. The idea of a gravitational field will be introduced briefly to present students with a visual idea of an all-attractive force. Students will also learn that gravity is a force whose true nature is still not fully understood by scientists. The course will then cover some example problems and provide students with valuable problem solving skills. The content of this series will give a deep understanding of gravitation and would be most beneficial for students doing A-Level or HL physics, who want to study engineering or physics at university.
