A car is traveling at a constant speed along road ABCDE. (Curve BC where Bis beginning of curve and C is the end of the curve is in the shape of a "backward C." C is then the beginning of another curve and D is the end of the same curve in the shape of a normal C, like you are beginning to make an 8. Section AB and DE are straight.)

Rank the acceleration in each of the 4 sections (AB, BC, CD, DE) according to magnitude, listing the smallest first. Justity the rankings.
