A car starts from rest and travels along a circular path of radius 200 m. The magnitude of its velocity(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

increases at a rate of 2 m/s

After 10 s, what is the magnitude of the acceleration of the car (in m/s

my attempt:

v = 10*2 = 20m/s

would the acceleration that the car's undergoing be equal to the centripetal acceleration?

so would it be v^2/r ?
