## 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:  ###### Velocity: ###### where,

a = Centripetal Acceleration, r = Circular Radius, v = Velocity,

##### 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

###### Substitute the values in the below Velocity formula: This example will guide you to calculate the velocity manually.
