Question

The figure to the right shows 2 small spheres (A and B)moving along a circular path (radius = 5 m) with the same speed of 8 m/s. At that instant, the speed of particle A is increasing at a rate equal to 0.8*1² m/s², while the speed of particle B increases by 4 m/s². a) How much time passes before the 2 spheres collide? b) Determine the acceleration of each sphere c) Calculate the magnitude of the acceleration for each sphere
