## Homework Statement

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?

## Homework Equations

Ac= v^2/r

## The Attempt at a Solution

I understand I am looking for the radius in the equation, I am 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.
