ROTATION Three significant figures are assumed throughout. The following passage outlines the design specifications of a proposed maglev train system (the Transrapid). What is the Transrapid's curve radius? The curve radii of modern high-speed systems result in dependence on the speed and the maximum possible superelevation of the guideway to compensate for the centrifugal forces occurring. The Transrapid's guideway can have a maximum superelevation of 12 degree (up to 16 degree in special cases) which allows smaller radii at higher speeds than in the case of conventional wheel-on-rail systems. o Minimal radius: 350 m o 200 km/h: 705 m o 400 km/h: 2,825 m o 500 km/h: 4,415 m 1. Determine the centripetal acceleration in km/hr 2 implied by these specifications for 200 km/hr. .
