    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.
