A centripetal-acceleration addict rides in uniform circular motion with period T = 3.58 s and radius r = 3.00 m. At one instant his acceleration is a = (7.00 m/s2)i + (-6.00 m/s2)j. At that instant, what are the following values?

I found r x a to be 0 m^2/s^2 which is right. I cannot figure out v dot a.

2. Relevant equations

I used the Period equation to get a velocity of 5.27 m/s.

3. The attempt at a solution

From here I do not know what to do.

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The airport terminal has a moving sidewalk to speed passengers through a long corridor. Larry does not use the moving sidewalk. He takes 185 s to walk through the corridor. Curly, who simply stands on the moving sidewalk, covers the same distance in 108 s. Moe boards the sidewalk and walks along it. How long does Moe take to move through the corridor? Assume that Larry and Moe walk at the same speed.

2. Relevant equations

I know the distance to be the same. I know i have two velocities. One is the velocity at which Larry and Moe walk. The other is the velocity of the sidewalk. I set up the distance to be a ratio of the distance over the time it took to go the length of the sidewalk. I cannot figure out how to make d cancel out. I know that i need to find an algebraic equation that will do so. I think i just need a nudge in the right direction.
