What maintains the speed of the Earth as it moves in its orbit around the sun?
Centripetal force combined with the sun's gravitational pull. Centripetal force tries to hurl Earth into space. The sun's gravitational pull tries to pull Earth into a fiery grave. The two forces work together to maintain a stable orbit. ...

What is the work of centripetal forces in uniform circular motion?
Work is equal to Force * displacement * cos(angle between force and displacement). When there is uniform circular motion, the displacement is in the same direction as the velocity: along the tangent of the circle. The centripetal force always points towards the center of the circle. These two directions (vectors) are perpendicular to each other (90 degrees). Cos(90) = 0, so the work is 0. ...
Can a centripetal force ever do work on an object. explain?
Centripetal force refers to the force that acts on a body moving in a circular path. It does not do work on an object because it acts perpendicular to the motion of the body. The work done on a rotating object is zero. ...

Asked in Physics, WW1 Allied Forces
Does centripetal force do work on the particle on which it acts?
No, because the force is perpendicular to the movement.
Asked in Cars & Vehicles
Why does work done by centripetal force is zero?
An object moves in a circle at constant speed. The work done by the centripetal force is zero because: 1. the displacement for each revolution is zero 2. the average force for each revolution is zero 3. there is no friction 4. the magnitude of the acceleration is zero 5. the centripetal force is perpendicular to the velocity ...
Asked in Science, Physics, Isaac Newton
Does centripetal force acting on an object do work on an object?
No because in two cases there is no work done 1. Displacement = 0 2. When there is centripetal force, which is when the displacement and the Force are perpendicular Only when object is moved up/down in a way then potential energy is gained and potential energy is equal to Work ...
Asked in Astronomy, Planetary Science, The Moon
What is the work done by the moon in revolving the earth?
The work done is zero as moon is revolving and displacement is zero though there is a centripetal force acting. ...

Asked in Science
When body moves in a circular path how much work is done by the body?
Zero. This is because when a body when around in a circle, a centripetal force acts on the particle to keep it at that fixed distance from the centre. At each point, the force and the displacement are perpendicular to each other. Hence no work is done. The answer is NOT Zero! A Force is required in the direction of motion around the circle. At every point (an infinite number of them) there must be a Force PERPENDICULAR to the Centrifugal and Centripetal Forces...
