1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A carnival merry-go-round rotates about a vertical axis at a constant rate. A man standing on the edge has a constant speed of 3.43 m/s and a centripetal acceleration of magnitude 1.87 m/s2. How far is the man from the center of the merry-go-round? 2. Relevant equations Ac= v^2/r 3. The attempt at a solution I understand I am looking for the radius in the equation, im just not sure about the other aspects of it. I get a radius of 6.29 the way i do it by: (3.43^2/1.87). Not confident though.
