## Homework Statement

a 0.60 kg mass is attached to one end of a 1.7 m string. The string will break if its tension exceeds 60 N. The mass is whirled in a horizontal circle on a frictionless tabletop, such that the other end of the string remains fixed at the axis of rotation. What is the maximum speed of the mass before the string breaks? you may treat the mass as a point mass, assume that the string is ideal, and neglect friction.
