One swings a rock at the end of a string. We wish for the string to remain taut and for the rock to travel in a circulat path, in a vertical plane. What mathematical condition must the centripetal acceleration of the rock satisfy for the string to remain taut when the rock is at its highest point?
[F[/c] = m[v][/2] / r ?
The Attempt at a Solution
So far I come up with this equation to define what is going on but I am not sure [F[/c] = m[v][/2] / r ?
