The car moves along a curvature of the road with a radius of 50 m at a speed of 10 m / s. Determine its centripetal acceleration.

Initial data: R (radius of curvature of the road along which the car is moving) = 50 m; V (vehicle speed on this section of the road) = 10 m / s.

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

Let’s make a calculation:

an = 10 ^ 2/50 = 100/50 = 2 m / s ^ 2.

Answer: The centripetal acceleration of the vehicle is 2 m / s ^ 2.
