Unformatted text preview: , , and, are vectors. Vectors and when added together equal the vector . Vector has a magnitude of 88 units and it is directed at an angle of 44 ° relative to the x axis as shown. Find the scalar components of vectors and .

Always constant magnitude ? a c = v 2 r Period time it takes an object to travel circumference of circle T = 2 π r v A steel ball is whirled on the end of a chain in a horizontal circle of radius R with a constant period T . If the radius of the circle is then reduced to 0.75 R , while the period remains T , what happens to the centripetal acceleration of the ball? a) The centripetal acceleration increases to 1.33 times its initial value. b) The centripetal acceleration increases to 1.78 times its initial value. c) The centripetal acceleration decreases to 0.75 times its initial value. d) The centripetal acceleration decreases to 0.56 times its initial value. e) The centripetal acceleration does not change. Example Example What is the magnitude of the centripetal acceleration of an object on the Earth’s equator owing to the rotation of the Earth? a c = v 2 r a c = v 2 r = 2 π r T 2 r = 4 π 2 r T 2 = 4 π 2 6.37 × 10 6 ⋅ m ( ) 1 ⋅ day ( ) 86400 ⋅ s 1 ⋅ day 2 = 0.033 ⋅ m / s 2 = 0.3% g DIRECTED INWARD just like gravity Relative motion in 1D Velocity of passenger (P) depends on which reference frame your in....
