  2. Total acceleration in a non-uniform rotational motion

Centripetal Force Calculator
Centripetal Force Calculator Results (detailed calculations and formula below)
The centripetal force in a rotational motion = N
The total acceleration in a non-uniform rotational motion = m/s2
Centripetal force in a rotational motion Calculation
FC = m × v2/r
FC = × 2/
FC = × /
FC = /
FC =
Total acceleration in a non-uniform rotational motion Calculation
a = √v2/r2 + v - v0/t2
a = √2/r2 + - /2
a = √/2 + /2
a = √2 + 2
a = √ +
a = √
a =
