A 1.01 kg mass is attached to a spring of force constant 9.5 N/cm and placed on a frictionless surface. By how much will the spring stretch if the mass moves along a circular path of radius 0.485 m at a rate of 2.14 revolutions per second?

What i was thinking was using the following equation:

Fc= Kx - mg

Which would turn into

a=kx-g

(4pi^2(R)(F)^2 +g)/K=x
