(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A supersonic airplane is flying horizontally at a speed of 2840 km/h. What is the centripetal acceleration of the airplane, if it turns from North to East on a circular path with a radius of 86.5 km?

How much time does the turn take?

How much distance does the airplane cover during the turn?

2. Relevant equations

a = v^2/r

3. The attempt at a solution

I got the acceleration which = 7.9 m/s but for calculating the time can I use Wf = Wo + at and use 90 degree for the initial and 0 for the final to solve for t
