A centrifuge is a laboratory device used for spinning samples of material. In a blood centrifuge, a test tube is inserted at an angle θ=32.0° with respect to the vertical and the whole sample is spun at high speed. For a typical test that is l= 15.9 cm long and is spun in a centrifuge at a rate of 4316 rotations per minute, what is the centripetal acceleration experienced by the sample at a point x=9.93 cm from the rotation axis, as measured along the test tube? Express your answer in units of the standard gravity g. Thus, if your answer is 19.62 m/s2 = 2.00×9.81 m/s2, you would enter 2.00 into the box.

First, I found the period
I dont think I did this correctly, as I didnt use the angle....
I have included a photo as well,
