the acceleration of an object in uniform circular motion which is pointed toward the center of the circle.
the acceleration, toward the center of the circle, of an object in uniform circular motion about this center
Acceleration directed toward the center of a circular path.
the acceleration toward the center that holds a satellite in elliptical orbit
the pull on an object that brings it towards the center, usually as the object spins around the center.
The acceleration caused by centripetal force.
The acceleration associated with motion around a circle, directed to the center of the circle.
The acceleration on a particle moving in a curved path, directed toward the instantaneous center of curvature of the path, with magnitude 2/R, where is the speed of the particle and the radius of curvature of the path. This acceleration is equal and opposite to the centrifugal force per unit mass.
The acceleration of a body experiencing uniform circular motion. This acceleration is always directed toward the center of the circle.
