    A neutron star cannot spin with less than a certain critical period, or else it will start to lose mass from its equator due to the “centrifugal” force. Estimate this period.

    Definitinely between 8 and 12 years, those are the formative years for healthy growth, and good nutrition during this time is critical.

    What? Do you want us to do your homework for you? There's a template for posting homework questions.
