Homework Help: Physics Please Help ASAP

Posted by Sierra on Monday, November 26, 2012 at 11:43pm.

Suppose the space shuttle is in orbit 390 km from the Earth's surface, and circles the Earth about once every 92.4 minutes. Find the centripetal acceleration of the space shuttle in its orbit. Express your answer in terms of g, the gravitational acceleration at the Earth's surface.
*note my teacher has not taught me anything to do with w = 2pi/T as some help websites have used this route to find the answer, obviously there's another way that my teacher has taught us how to solve this kind of problem and i already know the answer is 0.89g i just don't know how to get there. Thanks.
