a) You need to evaluate the angular displacement of the ball, using the following formula, such that:

`theta = S/r`

The displacement S = 10 m, and the radius r = 9 cm, hence, you need to convert the units of measure, such that:

`r = 9cm = 9*10^(-2) = 0.09 m`

`theta = 10/0.09 = 111 ` rad

b) You need to evaluate the angular velocity using the following formula, such that:

`omega = v/r => omega = 4.3/0.09 = 47.77 (rad)/s`

c) You need to evaluate the radial acceleration using the following formula, such that:

`a = v^2/r => a = (4.3)^2/(0.09) = 205.4 (rad)/s^2`
