sentir = to fell

Presente

siento
sientes / sentís
siente
sentimos
sentís / sienten
sienten

sentar = to sit

Presente

siento
sientas / sentás
sienta
sentamos
sentáis / sientan
sientan

PS: a little tip, if you enter here http://buscon.rae.es/draeI/ and you search for a verb, there is an option that says: "Conjugar". There you can see all the conjugations for all the verbs and all the times. It's very usefull.

Sentar: siento, sientas, sienta, sentamos, sentáis, sientan
Sentir: siento, sientes, siente, sentimos, sentís, sienten

Sentar means various things to do with sitting (used as a transitive verb) or going well with something (used as an intransitive verb with indirect object). Sentir means feeling / sensing (used with a verb in the indicative) or being sorry (used with a verb in the subjunctive).

Edit: demasiado despacio.

sentir = to feel

Sí, se acentúa la última sílaba (en presente de indicativo).
El voseo se usa en muchos países, y el uso cambia de país en país. No se lo usa en España. Mira aquí.
