Centripetal acceleration is

a=v²/R=25.8²/1350 =0.49 m/s²

The average acceleration =

=Δv/Δt = (v₂-v₁)/Δt

Since velocity is vector, vecor Δv can be found as vector difference (taking into account that velocity vector changed its direction by 90 degrees after the point has completed ¼ of the circle) => Δv = v•√2.

The time for the uniform motion for ¼ of the circle is

Δt=s/v=(2πR)/4v =π•1350/2•25.8 = 82.2 s,

a(ave) = Δv/Δt = 25.8•√2/82.2 =

=0.44 m/s²
