Rotation Lab

For one of our labs, we did a rotation lab. We had a string and two masses on each end. The goal was to spin the string and lift the heavier mass. We did this with three different masses, and found how many long it took to spin in ten revolutions. The goal of the lab is up to us, and I'm not really sure what I can find with the data given. We also have the radius of the string after each spin.

Two things that would occur to me is to compare the masses with the time for 10 revolutions (or for 1 revolution that you can calculate) and compare the radius to the time.
