Question

# A body is moving in a circle with a speed of $$1 ms^{-1}$$. This speed increases at a constant rate of $$2 ms^{-1}$$ every second. Assume that the radius of the circle described is $$25$$ m. The total acceleration of the body after $$2 s$$ is:

A
2ms2
B
25ms2
C
5ms2
D
7ms2

Solution

## The correct option is C $$\sqrt{5} ms^{-2}$$$$a_{1} = 2\ ms^{-2}, v = u + a_{1}t = 1 + 2\times 2 = 5\ ms^{-1}$$$$a_{c} = \dfrac {v^{2}}{r} = \dfrac {5^{2}}{25} = 1\ ms^{-2}$$Net acceleration $$= \sqrt {a_{c}^{2} + a_{t}^{2}} = \sqrt {1^{2} + 2^{2}} = \sqrt {5} ms^{-2}$$.Physics
