a stone is tied to the end of a string and is swung with a constant speed around a horizontal circle with a radius of 1.5m. if it makes two complete revolutions each second, what is the magnitude of its acceleration?

i know the answer, but i don't know how to get it. thank you!

• physics -

acceleration= v^2/r

where v= 2PIr/.5sec

• physics -

thank you sooo much! :)
