I don't know how to find ac, but I can help you with at and angular velocity of the disk.
(a) (7.8 rad/s^2)/4.0s = 31.2=angular velocity
at=7.8*.12=0.936

Tangential acceleration is the instantaneous linear acceleration associated with the particle at distance (r) from the center of rotation.
thus
Centripetal Accel= (angular accel)(r)

ac = (omega^2)*(radius)
= (31.2^2)*(0.12 m)
= 116.8
