Acceleration directed toward the center of a circular path. This is called as Centripetal(Centrifugal) Acceleration.
a = Centripetal Acceleration, r = Circular Radius, v = Velocity,
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
Substitute the values in the below centripetal acceleration formula:
This example will guide you to calculate the Centripetal Acceleration manually.
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
This example will guide you to calculate the velocity manually.
This tutorial will help you dynamically to find the Centripetal(Centrifugal) Acceleration problems.
