**Elena**, Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 1:45pma(τ)=0.52 m/s², R=500 m

v=? s=? t=?

------

v=a(τ) •t

centripetal (normal) acceleration is

a(n)=v²/R =( a(τ) •t)²/R = a(τ),

a(τ) ² •t²/R = a(τ),

t=sqrt{R/a(τ)}=sqrt{500/0.52)= 31 s,

s=a(τ) •t²/2 = 0.52•31²/2 =249.9 m,

v= a(τ) •t =0.52•31 = 16.12 m/s.
