You plan to throw stones by using a sling of length 1.3 m which you whirl over your head. Suppose you wish to throw a stone a distance of 25 m. What must be the centripetal acceleration of the stone just before its release if it is to reach this distance? Assume that the release height is 2.7 m.

2. Relevant equations

ac = v^2/r = (w^2)r = (4((pi)^2)r)/(T^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I really dont know how to start this problem
