Published at : 08 Dec 2020
This video shows a proof for the centripetal acceleration formula (a = v^2/r) using a geometrical proof. Therefore, it is appropriate for any algebra-based physics class. The derivation of this formula is often overlooked or taken for granted in high school physics classes, yet the mathematics behind the derivation shown here is at a fairly basic level.
