Astronauts use a centrifuge to simulate the acceleration of a rocket launch. The centrifuge takes 40.0 s to speed up from rest to its top speed of 1 rotation every 1.30 s. The astronaut is strapped into a seat 5.60 m from the axis.What is the astronaut's tangential acceleration during the first 40.0 s?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

now, i know how to find a(c) and a(t) with mass, but they dont give mass in this problem
