how does rotation differ from revolution
rotation is the turning on an internal axis while revolution is turning on an external axis.

compare and contrast centripetal force and centrifugal effect and supply examples of each
centrifugal effect is a center fleeing tendency of an object to fly away from center, centripetal is the opposite. It is a center seeking force. example of centrifugal effect is in a car when tangential inertia and a centripetal force are acting upon an object it creates the centrifugal effect in which if you turn left the passenger will scoot towards the door. An example of centripetal force is when you spin a can on a string that enforces it to stay in circular motion.
why are radians used in circular motion calculations
because 6.28 radians = 360 degrees = number of degrees in a circle.

what techniques for measuring r and theta would you recommend for best results
I used the tangent equation and derived for theta. I used the theta that I found and plugged it into the sin equation to find the opposite side, then I used the theory of similar triangles and lasers to find the radius.
for circular motion the tension will always be _______ the weight
greater than
what do you conclude about the direction of the net force that keeps the flying pig in uniform circular motion
The direction of the net force is in a radial direction towards the center/centripetal
for uniform circular motion the centripetal force will always be _______ the tension in the string
less than
how did the pig overcome air friction
the pig overcomes air friction by flapping its wings. this creates a centripetal force on the pig which in turn counters friction
