#### Solution Preview

Coriolis acceleration = ac = 2 w x (dr/dt)

---> ac = 2wu

Angular velocity = w = 20*2pi rad/min = 20*2pi/60 = 2pi/3 rad/s

u = ds/dt

ds = displacemnt along AB = 20 in - 10 in = 10 in

dt = time lapse = d(theta)/w

d(theta) = rotation = 90-0 = 90 ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution uses coriolis acceleration equations to find acceleration.
