b. Angular velocity

c. Tangential speed

d. Tangential acceleration

Expert's answer

1. If we tie a stone to a rope, and start to spin it in a horizontal circle, the tension in the rope is also known as *centripetal force.*

2. When a body is in uniform circular motion, the speed that is tangent to the circular path is called *tangential speed*

3. For a body or object to stay in a circular path there must be a force with a direction *into *the circle

4. In circular motion, the time it takes to complete *one round* the circle is called a period.

5. The *centripetal acceleration* keeps the body accelerating towards the center of the circular path
