  1. Nov 17, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    George of the Jungle swings on a vine 6.5 meters long. What is the tension in the vine if George whose mass is 75 kg, is moving at 2.4 m/s when the vine is vertical?


    2. Relevant equations
    Ftension=Fgravity
    Fgravity=mg
    Fgravity=Gm1m2/d2

    3. The attempt at a solution
