A car starts from rest on a curve with a radius of 120m and accelerates at 1.0m/s^2. Through what angle will the car have traveled when the magnitude of its total acceleration is 2.0 m/s^2?

  1. Total acceleration consists of two perpendicular components. The centripetal acceleration is V^2/R. The tangential acceration is given to be 1.0 m/s^2.
    When the total acceleration is 2.0, the centripetal acceleration is sqrt(2^2 - 1^2) = sqrt3 = 1.732 m/s^2

    Solve V^2/R = 1.732 for V, and then use that V to tell you how long and through what angle it has traveled.

    V = sqrt(120*1.732) = 14.4 m/s
    It takes 14.4 s to attain this speed at the acceleration rate of 1.0 m/s^2

    Now compute the angle it has moved through after 14.4 s. I will leave that step up to you.
