Question 1(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A conical pendulum consists of a string of length 1.2 m and a bob of mass 0.41 kg. The string makes an angle of 21° with the vertical. Calculate the tension in the string, in N.

iam not sure wat to do here if

[tex] l\omega{}^2 = \frac{g}{\cos\phi}[/tex]

then i use

[tex] T=ml\omega{}^2[/tex] to get the force. is that the way to calculate the tension. Thanks in advance
