This is a concept/procedure question. I am playing teth3rbalI with a 1 kilogran ball and it is tied to a meterlong string. When I hit the ball it circles the pole at 1.6 Hz. Find the anglethat the string makes with thepole.

2. Relevant equations

a[tex]_{r}[/tex]=v[tex]^{2}[/tex]/r

a[tex]_{r}[/tex]=(4[tex]\pi[/tex][tex]^{2}[/tex]r)/T[tex]^{2}[/tex]

T=1/f

f[tex]_{r}[/tex]=ma[tex]_{r}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

So I found the period for one cycle but that's basically it and I'm stuck without a radius or at least a velocity to go by. What am I overlooking?
