Calculate the acceleration

  1. Oct 15, 2004 #1
    A rock tied to a string is swung around in a circle at a constant speed of 25 ft/sec. The length of the string is 1.765 ft. Calculate the acceleration. (Round to nearest whole number.)

    acceleration = ________ft/sec2

    That said, centripetal acceleration is equal to [tex]\frac{v^2}{r}[/tex].
