Acceleration diagram

  1. May 18, 2014 #1
    Hey guys i done every thing and i just wan to know how to draw the acceleration diagram, thanks.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    velocity of b=0.9m/s
    radius =0.15m
    2. Relevant equations

    As this is still unanswered, I'll indicate how I think it would be done.

    You use triangles and trigonometry to show how distance C is related to distance B, where C is the height of point C above the horizontal line passing through O, and B is the distance of point B from a vertical axis through O.

    Once you have C related to B, differentiate twice wrt time, to obtain d²C/dt² in terms of dB/dt, etc.
