A small steel sphere of mass 0.40 kg is attached by a 0.50 m long cord to a swivel pin set into the surface of a frictionless table top. The sphere moves in a circle on the horizontal surface with a speed of 6.0 m/s.

a.) what is the magnitude of the centripetal acceleration of the sphere?

b.) what is the tension of the cord?
