On your first day at work for an appliance manufacturer, you are told to figure out what to do to the period of rotation during a washer spin cycle to triple the centripetal acceleration. You impress your boss by answering immediately.

Express your answer in terms of T.

2. Relevant equations

a=(4pi^2R)/T^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I read the question, and I keep thinking they just want to triple the accleration...which is not the answer. I don't exactly know what they are asking for....
