1. A particle moves in a circular path of 0.3-in radius. Calculate the magnitude a of the acceleration or
the particle (a) if its speed is constant at 0.6 m/s and (b)if its sped is 0.6 m/s but is increasing at the rate
of 0.9 m/s each second.
2. The car travels at a constant speed from the bottom A of the dipto the top B of the hump. If the
radius of curvature of the road atA is PA - 120 m and the Car acceleration at A is 0.4g. Determine the
car speed v. If the acceleration at B must be limited to 0.25g, determine the minimum radius of
curvature PB of the road at B.
3. The ladder of a fire truck is designed to be extended at the constant rate - 6in./sec and to be
elevated at the constant rate e - 2deg/sec. As the position e 50 and 15 ftis reached, determine the
magnitudes of the velocity V and the acceleration a of the fireman at A
4. The rocket is fired vertically and tracked by the radar station shown. When e reaches 60°, other
corresponding measurements give the values r= 30,000 ft, 70 ft/sec2, and e 0.02 rad/sec.
Calculate the magnitudes of the velocity and acceleration of the rocket at this position.
