A piece of string of length l and mass M is fastened into a circular loop and set spinning about the center of a circle with uniform angular velocity omega. Find the tension in the string. Suggestion: Draw a force diagram for a small piece of the loop subtending a small angle delta theta.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know I'm supposed to use differentials and then integrate, but isn't the tension in the rope the same everywhere?
