The driver of an automobile decreases her speed at a

constant rate from 45 to 30 mi/h over a distance of 750 ft

along a curve of 1500-ft radius. Determine the magnitude

of the total acceleration of the automobile after the

automobile has traveled 500 ft along the curve.

Problem 11.190

The driver of an automobile decreases her speed at a

constant rate from 45 to 30 mi/h over a distance of 750 ft

along a curve of 1500-ft radius. Determine the magnitude

of the total acceleration of the automobile after the

automobile has traveled 500 ft along the curve.

1. Use tangential and normal components: These components

are used when the particle travels along a circular path. The

unit vector e

t

is tangent to the path (and thus aligned with the

velocity) while the unit vector e

n

is directed along the normal to

the path and always points toward its center of curvature.

2. Determine the tangential acceleration: For a constant

tangential acceleration, the acceleration can be determined from

v dv = a
