## Homework Statement

The distance between the centres of the Earth and the moon is 60 times the radius of the earth. Calculate the centripetal acceleration of the moon. Acceleration due to gravity on the Earth's surface is 10m/s.

## Homework Equations

Centripetal acceleration= v^2/R

Orbital Velocity=√2gR/√2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found out the centripetal acceleration of Earth but I cannot find that of the moon.
