| **At the turn, the car moves at a constant modulus speed of 5 m / s. What is its centripetal acceleration if the radius of curvature of the path is 50m?**

Initial data: V (constant speed with which the car moves on a turn) = 5 m / s; R (radius of curvature of the path) = 50 m.

The centripetal acceleration of the car can be calculated using the formula: an = V ^ 2 / R.

Let’s make a calculation: an = 5 ^ 2/50 = 25/50 = 0.5 m / s2.

Answer: The centripetal acceleration of the car is 0.5 m / s2.
