An aeroplane is flying along the horizonyal at a velocity Vo starts to ascend describing a circle with height ‘h’ above the initial level of motion acc. To the expression v2 =vo 2-2ßh the velocity of plane at the upper point of trajectory is v1=V0/2. Find the acceleration magnitude of the plane when its velocity is directed vertically upwards.

							The velocity of the aeroplane is vertical when it has completed quarter circle. In that case, there are two components of acceleration:
  • Centripetal acceleration, acdirected towards center, i.e. horizontal.
  • Tangential acceleration, at= g, directed downwards.
Let’s assume the velocity be v1when the aeroplane is moving vertically. Then,
v_1^2 = v_0^2-2g\frac{h}{2} = v_0^2-gh
Also, it is given
\left(\frac{v_0}{2}\right)^2 = v_0^2-2gh
This gives
v_1^2 = \frac{5gh}{3}\\ a_c=\frac{v_1^2}{h/2}=\frac{10g}{3} \Rightarrow a = \sqrt{a_c^2+a_t^2}=\frac{\sqrt{109} g}{3}
