Speed and Spring Constant

1. You are swinging a tin can around your head in a perfectly horizontal circle of radius 4 m. (This is really not possible but we're saying it almost happens.) If the speed of the can is 4 m/s what is its acceleration?

2. You thoughtfully set a 1 kg box on top of a loaf of bread and the loaf compresses by 15 cm. Thinking of the bread as a spring, what is its spring constant?
