Unformatted text preview: d at x = 10 m and y = –2.0 m. Formally solving the y- component equation for the time, we obtain t = −2 y / g , which we substitute into the first equation: g 9.8 m/s 2 v0 = x − = (10 m ) − = 15.7 m/s. 2y 2 ( −2.0 m ) (top view) Therefore, the magnitude of the centripetal acceleration is v 2 (15.7 m/s ) a= 0 = = 160 m/s 2 . R 1.5 m 2 gx 2 . The equation implies − 2...
