A racing car travels on a circular track of
radius 208 m. The car moves with a constantlinear speed of 26.3m/s.A) Find its angular speed. Answer in units of rad/s. (0.126 rad/s is the answer)
I need help finding B
B) Find the magnitude of its acceleration. Answer in units of m/s^2
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! the solution is as such:
we know, v = w*r ,
where v= linear velocity
w= angular velocity
and r= radius
thus, w= v/r
w=26.3 / 208 = 0.1264 rad/s
now, acceleration a= v^2 / r
a= (26.3) ^2 /208
a= 3.325 m/ s^2
