Centripetal acceleration formula

Centripetal acceleration formula

A simple yet rigorous mathematical derivation of the centripetal acceleration formula, a=(v^2)/r, including that the direction is towards the centre of the circle. Use as a handout for A-level students who want to push themselves a little beyond the specification without getting out of their depth.
