Describe a situation in which the normal component of acceleration is 0 and the tangential component of
acceleration is non-zero. Is it possible for the tangential component of acceleration to be 0 while the normal component of acceleration is non-zero? Explain. Finally, is it possible for an object to move (not be stationary) so that both the tangential and normal components of acceleration are 0? Explain.
Now, we know that the acceleration consists of the tangential component and the normal component. That is: a = a T + a N ,... View the full answer
