| **Determine the speed of a body moving in a circle with a radius of 12.5 m, if its centripetal acceleration is 0.5 m / s ^ 2**

Given:

R = 12.5 meters – the radius of the circle along which the body moves;

a = 0.5 m / s ^ 2 – centripetal acceleration of the body.

It is required to determine v (meter per second) – the speed of a body moving in a circle.

To determine the speed of the body, you need to use the following formula:

V = (a * R) ^ 0.5 = (0.5 * 12.5) ^ 0.5 = 6.25 ^ 0.5 = 2.5 meters per second.

Answer: the speed of a body moving in a circle is 2.5 meters per second.
