GR0177 Ques 23

Postby erc » Sun Oct 30, 2005 2:47 pm

I know I'm being really stupid, but I got the same wrong answer twice. Can anyone tell me what to do. Please?

A particle is constrained to move in a circle with 10m radius. Speed is 10m/s, increasing at a rate of 10m/s/s The angle between the particle\s velocity and acceleration vectors is
a) 0

Thanks in advance,

The answer should be 45 deg.
centripetal acc. is 10*10/10 = 10 and tangential is 10(given). so, the resultant is 10*sqrt(2) at an angle of 45 degs.
