Physics 215 – Fall 2014Lecture 03-121 Acceleration of object moving at constant speed on a circular path: Acceleration depends on radius of circle.

Physics 215 – Fall 2014Lecture 03-122 Two cars are moving at different constant speeds on a curved road. One after the other, they are passing the same point on the road: Car A at 18 mph; car B at 36 mph. If car A’s acceleration is 2 m/s 2, car B’s acceleration is: A.1 m/s 2 B.2 m/s 2 C.4 m/s 2 D.8 m/s 2

Physics 215 – Fall 2014Lecture 03-123 What is the magnitude of the acceleration of an object moving at constant speed if the path is curved but not a circle? “r” is the radius of curvature of the path at a given point
