The athlete shown in the figure rotates a 1.00 kg discus along a circular path of radius 1.07 m. The maximum speed of the discus is 19.0 m/s. Determine the magnitude of the maximum radial acceleration of the discus.

  • Physics -

    The radial acceleration is V^2/R. The mass does not matter.

    19^2/1.07 = ____ m^2/s
