slow enough so the Take whatever measurements you need to calculate the centripetal
acceleration of the ball in the cup. ____________.
ANSWER The centripetal acceleration is aclacalculated from A_{c} = V^{2}/ R. "A_{c}" is the centripetal acceleration. "V" is the velocity which is calculated from V = ^{[2(pi)R]}/T. Where "pi" is 3.14 and "T" is the period of motion.
