While racing on a flat track, a car rounds a curve of 56 m radius and instantaneously experiences a centripetal acceleration of 36 m/s2. How fast was the car going?
I know the answer i s45 I just need to know why ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

• physics -

a = v^2/r
ar = v^2
56*36 = v^2
2016 = v^2
v = 44.9
