The Centripetal Acceleration calculator computes the centripetal accelerationCircular Motion which is the acceleration directed toward the center of a circular motion with constant angular velocity.
INSTRUCTION: Choose units and enter the following:
Magnitude of Centripetal Acceleration |a|: The calculator the acceleration in meters per second squared. However, the user can automatically convert this to other acceleration units via the pull-down menu.
Note than if a mass is moving in this circular motion and is affected by this acceleration due to changing angular velocity, that mass will feel a force along the vector direction of `vec(a_"rad")`.
The formula for theis:
`|a| = |v|^2/r`
