Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to solve a problem but I can't figure how to continue..

There's an object moving in a circular path with radius 0.5m in an horizontal surface. The rope will break if the tension exceeds 16N. What is the maximum kinect energy?

So r = 0.5m

T = 16N

K=[itex]\frac{1}{2}[/itex]m[itex]v^{2}[/itex]

How can I find m and v? I tried with T = mg <=> 16 = m(9.8) <=> m = 1.63kg but I don't know if it is correct. But besides that I can't figure how to find v
