My Physics teacher wanted me to understand how to derive [tex]a=v^2/r[/tex] using the equations [tex]v=d/t[/tex], [tex]\omega=\theta/t[/tex] and [tex]arc length=r\theta[/tex] but when it came down to it, i had brain freeze..and when my teacher looked at it, he had brain freeze. This isnt part of my syllabus but i was wondering how you derive the equation (so it isnt homework!)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

oh yeah, i was given the hint to work it first into the equation [tex]v=r\omega[/tex] and then work from there.

Cool, i just used that LaTex stuff! that was quite challenging!

thanx
