Acceleration vector diagram for Newtonian planet motion

In classical Newtonian mechanics for planetary motion,

inclination of orbit to radial direction = al, where

tan(al)= ratio of velocites = omega radius/rdt

Next, how to express tan(al) using following three radial and two circumferential acceleration components:

rdtdt, omega^2 radius and mu/radius^2 ( mu = GM );
r thdtdt and 2 radius thdt rdt?
