## Homework Statement

A projectile is fired at an angle of 30 degrees above the horinzontal with a velocity V0 of 460 m/s. Determine the radius of the curvature of the trajectory at the position of the particle 10 seconds after firing.

## Homework Equations

V = U + AT

## The Attempt at a Solution

By working out the speeds of the x and y components 10 seconds into the flight I've worked out the projectile is facing 39.466 degrees below the horizontal. However, now that i know the angle of the projectile 10 seconds into its journey, how do i work out the "radius of the curvature"?

Any help would be much appreciated.
