Unformatted text preview: B ’s acceleration is The direction of acceleration of A is given to be 45° (“in the direction of motion”). Therefore, the direction of acceleration of B must also be 45°. The normal and tangential components for the acceleration of B must be of equal magnitude and must be as shown in the figure below. Therefore, the speed of B is found from: The magnitude of the accelerations of A and B must both be:...
