## Centrifugal Acceleration Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Centrifugal Acceleration.

**CA = CV / dT**

- Where CA is the Centrifugal Acceleration (rad/s^2)
- CV is the change in centrifugal velocity (rad/s)
- dT is the change in time (s)

## What are the units for Centrifugal Acceleration?

In the International System of Units, also known as SI units, the units for Centrifugal Acceleration are rad/s^2.

## How to Calculate Centrifugal Acceleration?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Centrifugal Acceleration.

First, determine the change in centrifugal velocity. In this example, the change in centrifugal velocity is calculated or measured to be 42 (rad/s).

Next, determine the change in time. For this problem, the change in time is determined to be 10 (s).

Finally, calculate the Centrifugal Acceleration using the formula above:

**CA = CV / dT**

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

**CA = 42 / 10 = 4.2**(rad/s^2)
