do you know how to do this one?
well i think the radius is 27800...
(200)(250)^2/27800 = 449.64ms^-2

does that look correct?
im sorry i cant wrap my head around it.
\[Fc= MV ^{2}\div R\]
wait wouldnt velocity be 27800?
yes it is.
so what is my radius then?
thats what i was trying to figure out.
V=2pi r / Time
ahhh
but i dont have r or t
time is 1 hr
because its kph?
yes.
hold on im getting my physics book
\[V=2\pi r/t\]
yes.
is t= 1 ??
or 60?
ok a=v^2/R
no that doesnt help..
can you please explain :)
im trying to find a way to find the radius
acceleration=velocity squared/ radius
so radius=velocity squared/accelertion
yah but how do you get the acceleration without the radius?
yea thats why i was like no that doesnt work
ok now bare with me.... isnt the radius of earth given somewhere...
then add 250 km
????
6 378.1km
yeaaaa
there you go!!
so its 6628.1km
v^2/r
27800^2km/hr / 6628.1k
116600.53
hold on sorry
((27800km/hr)^2/6 378.1km)mass
no you dont need mass for acceleration...
i hope i was able to help you some.
I have to find centripetal force now
multiply by mass
116,600.53*200?
the centripital acceleration * mass
