This worksheet and quiz will test your ability to understand uniform circular motion. You will answer quiz questions on topics such as the full definition of uniform circular motion and the characteristics of an object moving in uniform circular motion.

These study tools will guide you to:

- Name the force that keeps an object in circular motion
- Calculate the centripetal force on a ball in a circle
- Recognize the difference between a scalar and a vector

Use the worksheet and quiz to practice the following helpful skills:

**Reading comprehension**- ensure that you draw the most important information from the related lesson on uniform circular motion**Defining key concepts**- make certain you know how to define uniform circular motion**Problem solving**- use acquired knowledge to solve a centripetal force problem in a given example**Distinguishing differences**- compare and contrast topics from the lesson, such as a scalar and a vector

The accompanying lesson is entitled Uniform Circular Motion: Definition & Mathematics, and it will cover the following objectives:

- Define centrifugal force
- Analyze equations for calculating uniform circular motion
- Recognize the differences between several types of forces
