A 1.7-kg ball tied to a string fixed to the ceiling is pulled to one side by a force to an angle of 33.9° from the ceiling. Just before the ball is released and allowed to swing back and forth, (a) how large is the force that is holding the ball in position and (b) what is the tension in the string?
I tried 16.66N for the force part a because I thought it would be the mass*gravity, but that's not right.
