Chapter 6 Projectile and Periodic Motion
  Here is your chance to apply what you've learned in this chapter.

We first studied projectile motion. We learned that all falling objects follows the same path. Then we analyzed periodic motion, which repeats itself. The force that causes an object to make a circular path is called the centripetal force.
