ok so i've got a problem i cannot figure out and i know i'm skipping some simple step, so could someone please help me with the following question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Estimate the force a person must exert on a string attached to a 0.190 kg ball to make the ball revolve in a horizontal circle of radius 0.600 m. The ball makes 1.40 revolutions per second. Do not ignore the weight of the ball. In particular, find the magnitude of FT, and the angle it makes with the horizontal. [Hint: Set the horizontal component of FT equal to maR; also, since there is no vertical motion, what can you say about the vertical component of FT?]

FT = ?N

Theta= ?Degrees

There's an attached picture to go along with the problem.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
