Instead of using a=dv/dt use a=vdv/ds.

The given condition is |aT|=|aN|

i.e -vdv/ds=v2/R .

Integrate with proper limits and you will get the answer.

The particle was decelerating, so your first equation should have been a=-v2/R. The other error was, that when you integrated v with respect time, you forgot the lower limit of integration. So your result is dimensionally incorrect. Tanya's solution is very elegant and simple, but yours is also all right if you do it properly. :smile:

The lower limit of time should be zero. The question states that.

Yes, but you have ln(R-vot), it is not zero at t=0.

After integration when you put t=0,the term doesn't vanish.You have erroneously assumed it to be 0.
