Lab on circular motion. The class swung a mass in a circular motion by a string.

--Find percent error of the trail.

Total mass=0.25kg

radius=.448 meters

period=.427 seconds

2. Relevant equations

I am not sure

3. The attempt at a solution

This is one of those problems that drew me a blank... I have no idea where to start. It would be great if someone could just start me off with what i am trying to take the % error of. I know that % error is actual/theoretical X 100%. I just don't know what I am trying to solve. Thanks.
