Question

# An aircraft executes an horizontal loop of radius 1 km with a steady sped of 900 km/hr . Calculate the centripetal acceleration

Solution

## Radius of circular path is, r = 1 km = 1000 m Speed of the aircraft is, v = 900 km/h = 900 × 5/18 = 250 m/s So, the centripetal acceleration is, a = v2/r = 2502/1000 = 62.5 m/s
