The angle made by its acceleration with its velocity is ? Tangential acceleration = 5 m/s^2 Centripetal acceleration = v^2 / r = 5 Angle btw them alpha = 45 degree How do I find angle btw omega and centripetal acceleration ??

Hint: $\displaystyle v = r \omega$ where v is the tangential speed, which you were given. Can you think of a relationship between a and $\displaystyle \alpha$?
