Challenge in mechanics 4

A projectile is thrown at an inclination θ. A bird follows the path of the projectile maintaining a constant speed same as the initial speed of the projectile. Find the bird’s acceleration at its highest point?

Since velocity is constant we have acceleration always in the normal direction given by :

\(\frac { { v }^{ 2 } }{ R }\) where \(R\) is the radius of curvature.Now radius of curvature is given by

\(R=\frac { { v }^{ 2 }{ cos }^{ 2 }\theta }{ g } \) .Putting the values we have :

\(\boxed { a=\frac { { v }^{ 2 } }{ (\frac { { v }^{ 2 }{ cos }^{ 2 }\theta }{ g } ) } =g{ sec }^{ 2 }\theta }\)
