Oberon completes one (circular) orbit of Uranus in 13.5 days. The distance from Uranus to Oberon is 5.84×10^8m.?

You gave us its lunar period and radial separation but forgot to ask a question.
Perhaps you wanted orbital speed v = 2πr/T ?
v = 2π*5.84*10^8/(13.5 * 86400) ~ 3146 m/s or 3.146 km/sec

Uranus’s moon Oberon orbits Uranus at a distance of 584,000 kilometers
(362,000 miles) taking roughly 13.5 days to complete one trip around the planet.
Oberon completes one (circular) orbit of Uranus in 13.5 days.
The distance from Uranus to Oberon is 5.84 × 10^8m.
What is the centripetal acceleration of Oberon?

That's nice. If only you knew the gravitational constant, G, you could figure out the mass of Uranus.
