3.46 … BIO Spiraling Up. Birds of prey typically rise upward on thermals. The paths these birds take may be spiral-like. You can model the spiral motion as uniform circular motion combined with a constant upward velocity. Assume that a bird completes a circle of radius 6.00 m every 5.00 s and rises vertically at a constant rate of 3.00 m>s. Determine (a) the bird’s speed relative to the ground; (b) the bird’s acceleration (magnitude and direction); and (c) the angle between the bird’s velocity vector and the horizontal.

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
