## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Since the tangent moves at uniform angular speed ,the particle also moves with constant angular speed . Is it correct ?

If it is right then the particle has only radial acceleration given by ##ω^2r## ,where 'r' is the radius of curvature .

r = sec2x

r ( x= πa/4) = 1/√2 .

Hence resultant acceleration at x= πa/4 = 2√2 .

I don't have the answer key . Have I interpreted the question correctly and done it right ?

I would be grateful if somebody could verify my work .
