Here's what I've found so far:

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)

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.

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