I find the equation for centripetal acceleration non-intuititive. V^2/r tells me velocity is multiplied by the velocity ( which at this stage is usually a very large number) then this is divided by the radius.. Leaves me with subdivisions that happen to equal the rate of acceleration..Dubious.. And why like in linear acceleration is there no recognition of initial and final velocities and even a dimension of time. Is anyone else discomforted by this and can anyone shed some light on this, thanks.
