Our centripetal acceleration calculator enables you to easily compute the acceleration of an object moving along a circular path.

**Centripetal Acceleration Calculator**

This calculator helps you find the centripetal acceleration of an object moving along a circular path. To use this calculator, enter the velocity (in meters per second) and the radius of the circular path (in meters), then click on the Calculate button.

**How to Use the Calculator:**

- Enter the velocity of the object in the first input field.
- Enter the radius of the circular path in the second input field.
- Click on the Calculate button to compute the centripetal acceleration.

**How It Calculates Results:**

The calculator computes centripetal acceleration using the formula:

*a*_{c} = v^{2} / r, where:

*a*_{c} is the centripetal acceleration,*v* is the velocity of the object, and*r* is the radius of the circular path.

The result is given in meters per second squared (m/s²).

**Limitations:**

The calculator assumes uniform circular motion and does not take into account other forces acting on the object. It does not apply to objects moving in non-circular paths or when the speed or radius is changing over time. The accuracy of the result depends on the precision of the input values.
