A couple of circular motion problems... I realize that this is something I could have figured out if I had more time, but I am running out of it..please help.

1. A circular disk of radius 30 cm is rotating with an angular acceleration of 1 radian/ s2. What is the tangential acceleration of a point on the rim of the disk? What is its centripetal acceleration if the angular speed is 3 rev / s?

2. A 980 Kg car traveling at 20 m/s rounds a curve of radius 40 m. What is the friction force that must act on the car to keep it in its circular path?

3. An object with a mass of 100 Kg is dragged up an incline by applying a force F. The total distance moved along the incline is 200 m and the vertical height gained in moving this distance is 20 m. What is the magnitude of the force F if friction is negligible? (Assume g = 10 m/s2)
