Consider a level flight turn of a propeller-driven airplane in which the airplane makes a complete circular turn in 1.6 min. If the plane's speed is 180 m/s, what is the radius of the circle?
1 m
What is the centripetal acceleration of the plane?
2 m/s2

  • physics -

    180 m/s * 96s
    =17280 m
    radius = 17280/2π

    angular velocity
    =2π/96s rad./s
    =π/48 rad/s

    Centripetal acceleration
    =rω² m/s²

    I get about 11.8 m/s²
