How is the Period proportional to the Radius. (The Period being how long it takes for 1 full revolution of an object)
I am also assuming there is a tension force.

Centripetal motion is the motion of an object along a circular path, where the object experiences a force directed towards the center of the circle, known as the centripetal force.
Centripetal force is the force that keeps an object moving along a circular path, while centrifugal force is the apparent outward force experienced by an object in circular motion. Centrifugal force is a fictitious force and does not actually exist.
Centripetal force is necessary to keep an object moving along a circular path. Without a centripetal force, the object would move in a straight line tangent to the circle.
Some examples of centripetal motion include the orbit of planets around the sun, the motion of a car around a curved track, and the spinning motion of a roller coaster.
Centripetal force is a result of the application of Newton's second law of motion, which states that the net force acting on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration. In the case of circular motion, the force is directed towards the center of the circle, providing the necessary acceleration for the object to maintain its circular path.
