Okay, so the job I need to do is derive an equation for the radius of an object in terms of its frequency.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

These are the equations that we are allowed to use:

v(Linear velocity) = rω

v=2πr/T

ω (angular velocity)=2πf

f (frequency)= 1/T (time period)

T= 2πr/v

a (centripetal acceleration)=v^2/r

F (centripetal force)=mv^2/r

So now..my attempt:

r= v/ω

= √ar/2πf

= (√(a*(vT/2π))/2πf

2πfr=√(a*(vT/2π)

2πfr^2= a * (vT/2π)

2π * 2πfr^2 = a * vT

...... I'm lost I have so many variables that I need to eliminate and I'm not sure what else to do from here. Help would be very appreciated.
