A cyclist enters a curve of 30 m radius at a speed of 12 m s-1. He applies the
brakes and decreases his speed at a constant rate of 0.5 m s-2. Calculate the
cyclist’s centripetal (radial) [3 marks] and tangential [15 marks]
accelerations when he is travelling at a speed of 10 m s-1.

    Matt Ross bums you silly for loose change

    cant answer this question too busy lifting DENCH weights at the gym and FINESSING too many tingz #140onthebench

    Matt Ross, how much do you deem as loose change? My funds are about as tight as my bumhole ;)
