In the Centripetal Acceleration part 2 video the equation for acceleration of an orbiting object is correctly stated as a = V^2/r. 

The error is that the velocity (30 ft/second) was plugged in to the acceleration term of the expression. 

The video shows: 30 ft/second = V^2/6000, 

The video SHOULD show: a (acceleraion) = (30 ft/second)^2/6000

Attached is a screen shot showing the error. hank you, -Dave Goeke
