Centripetal Acceleration Tutorial
 Centripetal Acceleration:      Acceleration directed toward the center of a circular path. This is called as Centripetal(Centrifugal) Acceleration. Centripetal Acceleration Formula : Centripetal Acceleration: Radius: Velocity: where, a = Centripetal Acceleration, r = Circular Radius, v = Velocity, Centripetal(Centrifugal) Acceleration Example: Case 1: A car moving at a speed of 29 m/s moves around a circle with a radius of 20 m. Determine the acceleration of the car.  r = 20 m, v = 29 m/s   Step 1: Substitute the values in the below centripetal acceleration formula:             This example will guide you to calculate the Centripetal Acceleration manually. Case 2: A tyre is running around a circle with a radius of 5 m and 12 m/s2 of centripetal acceleration. Determine the speed of the tyre.  a = 12 m/s2, r = 5 m   Step 1: Substitute the values in the below Velocity formula:             This example will guide you to calculate the velocity manually.
