Question - Centripetal Acceleration
Hi, I am new to this app and am doing a lab regarding the centripetal acceleration of a bicycle wheel corresponding to different radii on the wheel. I have mounted the bike on a treadmill to obtain a constant speed, however, I keep getting sin curves for the centripetal acceleration when it should be constant. I have attached my phone to the spike of the bike vertically so that the phone is parallel to the spike, however, I'm not sure how I can obtain a constant acceleration.
