i need help with the formula to solve this problem. I know this is probably a super simple question but I am a struggling science student that really wants to be successful in this class. Don't just want the answer....want to understand how to solve.

Would it help if I told you that centripetal acceleration is somehow related to tangential and angular velocity?
