# Acceleration Calculator-centripetal acceleration

## Step 1:

Enter the values of instantaneous velocity and radius of curve below using which you want to find the centripetal acceleration.

The acceleration calculator finds the centripetal acceleration using the given values.

Centripetal acceleration of the object is given by-

${a}_{c}=\frac{{v}^{2}}{r}$

${a}_{c}=\text{centripetal acceleration}$

$v=\text{instantaneous velocity}$

$r=\text{radius of curve}$

## Step 2:
