    Hello,
    I've attempted a question a mechanic question for my summer exam but am doubtful that I've shown all the working out.
    I don't want to miss any steps and lose valuable marks in my exam so could you please have a look to see if my working out fully answers the problem?

    Thank you all in advance

    It's easy to check if your answer is correct. It is.
    The method is also correct. You have found the x and y components of the accelerations by considering the linear and centripetal accelerations.

    But whether you will get all the marks for this is a difficult question. It depends on your tutor, the level at which this work is pitched, the context, and how the marks are allocated.
    For an undergrad fairly straightforward sort of problem it's possibly ok.


    On the other hand
    You could say, for example, where the number 3.6 has come from.
    You could mention the words "centripetal acceleration". for the one acceleration and linear (in the direction of motion) for the other.
    You could explain each step a little more.

    We can't definitively answer the question about how the marks are allocated.
