Here's what I've found so far:

If centripetal force is different than centripetal acceleration and a weight is needing to determine the newtons involved then assume that the object being acted upon weighs 80 earth kg.a_{c}= v_{t}^{2}/r

centripetal acceleration = (tangental acceleration)^{2}/ radius of circular path

F_{c}= mv_{t}^{2}/r

centripetal force = mass x ((tangental speed)^{2}/ radius of circular path)

Thanks for any help! If you could just nudge me in the right direction I'd appreciate it very much.
