How do I find the instantaneous acceleration of the earth orbiting the sun? Everything I am trying is incorrect.
I am using 1 second as my time and get 1.99E-7 rads/second.
First I tried:
acceleration = theta x t / radius
Where: theta = 1.99E-7 rads
radius = 6.371E6
Then I tried s = r x theta
Where r = 6.371E6 and theta = 1.99E-7
