Rounding a Curve: Acceleration?

APPH12-VY2YVR

A car goes around a curve of radius $60\ \text{m}$ at a constant speed of $15\ \text{m/s}$.

What is the centripetal acceleration of the car?

A

$0.25\ \text{m/s}^2$ towards the center of the curve.

B

$0.25\ \text{m/s}^2$ towards the outside of the curve.

C

$3.75\ \text{m/s}^2$ towards the center of the curve.

D

$900\ \text{m/s}^2$ towards the outside of the curve.
