a child sitting 1.10 m from the center of a merry go round moves with a speed of 1.25 m/s. calculate the centripetal acceleration of the child and the net horizontal force exerted on the child (mass = 25 kg).

  • PHYSICS - ,

    The centripetal acceleration is
    a = V^2/R and the force is
    F = m a = m V^2/R.

    m = 25 kg
    V = 1.25 m/s
    R = 1.10 m

    Do the numbers.

  • PHYSICS - ,

    so i did a = 1.25^/1.1 = 1.42 m/s^2
    then F =ma = 25(1.42) = 35.5N is that right?
