Central Force Motion

Salma Alrasheed

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A force is said to be central under two conditions. First, the direction of the force must always be toward or away from a fixed point (see Fig. 9.1). This point is known as the center of the force. Second, the magnitude of the force should only be proportional to the distance r between the particle and the center of the force.
