(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A mass attached to a spring which is mounted on a turntable. If you wanted to double the angular velocity, but keep the radius of the circle the same, by how much would you change the spring constant?

2. Relevant equations

[itex]\omega = \frac{v}{r}[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm a bit confused on how these two are related.

If the radius is staying the same & the goal is to double [itex]\omega[/itex], then the part of the equation which would change would be, v, the tangential velocity. I just can't figure out how k is related to tangential velocity. Can someone hel point me in the right direction? Thanks
