Acceleration towards the centre of the circle

#### Explanation:

Isn't it centripetal acceleration? I don't think there is an acceleration called centripedal.
If it is centripetal acceleration,

"Centripetal acceleration is the idea that any object moving in a circle will have an acceleration vector pointed towards the center of that circle. Centripetal means towards the center".

You can find out the centripetal acceleration, using this formula,

Centripetal acceleration=$\frac{{V}^{2}}{r}$
V= speed
r= the radius of the circle

I hope this helps
