Radius and speed

A student runs on a circular track that has a radius of 135 m. If she accelerates at 0.60 m/s2, what is her speed?

a=V2/R?
0.62m/s2 /135m??

I think I def have the wrong formula, is anyone able to help me out to find speed?

you have the correct formula, v2=aR, so just get v
 
How do I get the v? :) thank you
 
v2=aR
0.62m/s2 /135m
0.004
sqare root = 0.26?
Im def doing something wrong, maybe im putting it in my calculator wrong

You should be multiplying, not dividing as you are doing.
 
thank you! :)
