there are some assumptions which you should make is that, the seconds have move with constant angular velocity 'w' time period is 2pi/w=60. w=2pi/60 10 secs means it travels 1/6th part of the clock.dw:1382102831264:dw it goes from A to B. change in velocity and solve like the previous case how we did it. and then that divide by the total time taken=10secs. do this and you'll get the ans.

Radial acceleration is \(R\omega^2\) assuming constant angular velocity. The angular velocity is \(\dfrac{2\pi}{60} \rm rad s^{1}\)

ahhww.. i dunno how to even begin.. average acceleration shoudl be zero cause before 10 seconds and after 10 seconds, the second hand comes to stop :/

if it's right then how we r going to calculate acceleration

i m convinced with this that linear velocity is cuming as pi/300 m/sec

then u know what is the relation between linear vel and centripetal acceleration

no no sory i made a mistake lemme solve it

MashyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
u knw u can solve this simply.. 60 seconds  2 pi rads 1 second  pi/30 rads so a = w^2 r = (pi^2/900)*0.1

That's also the answer Mashy gave you.

Abhishek619Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the answer given is correct. it's pi/3000 m/s^2. at least this is what i'm getting.

how r u getting this answer cuz i m getting it as pi^2/9000

Hi @samigupta8, I am so sorry, but @Mashy and myself have led you to a wrong solution to your problem. Actually, @Abhishek619 gave you the right answer at the very beginning. As the problem asks for AVERAGE acceleration from position 1 to position 2, as acceleration is a vector, the right answer is: \(\vec a_{average} = \Large \frac {\vec v_2\vec v_1}{t_2t_1}\) with \(\Delta t = t_2t_1\)=10 s and \(\vec v_1\) and \(\vec v_2\) as drawn in Abhishek619's sketch. dw:1382428975483:dw Hence \(\vec v_2\vec v_1\) has the same magnitude v as v1 and v2 because all angles are π/3 the magnitude of the average acceleration is a = v/\(\Delta t\) Since v = 2πr/60s = 2π x 0.1 /60 = π / 300 m/s and \(\Delta t\) = 10 s then average acceleration is a = π / 3000 m/s²
