Circular motion problem

  1. Oct 31, 2006 #1
    What are (a) the angular speed, (b) the radial acceleration, and (c) the tangential acceleration of a spaceship negotiating a circular turn of radius 3220 km at a constant speed of 28,700 km/h?

    I am not sure what formulas to use.... any suggestions would be appreciated.
