Review  Velocity, Circular Motion
A. Equations & Vectors
Review 1. Centripetal Acceleration (a_{c})  acceleration toward center of curvature
r  radius,
b) (V) Instantaneous Velocity  tangent to circle, in the direction of the motion
c) Centripetal Force (F_{c})  force directed toward the center of the circle
Ex) A car moving in a circular path with a radius of 2.0 m has a velocity of 8.0 m/s. What is the centripetal acceleration of this car?
a_{c }= 64/2
a_{c} = 32. m/s^{2}
