Homework Help: Centripal acceleration ?

  1. Nov 6, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    1) Calculate the module of the centripetal acceleration of an object located on the equator for its movement linked to the rotation of the Earth on itself.

    2) Calculate the module of centripetal acceleration by its orbit around the sun (if we consider it's orbit as circular).

    2. Relevant equations

    T=2 pi / v ?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    T=2 pi / v :(
