I am kind of lost since I do not know how to find the period or anything. This is a A.P. Physics class in highschool without the use of calculus.

The vertical component of th tension balances the weight, so you should be able to calculate it since you know the angle.

The find the horizontal compt of the tension. This provides the centripetal force. Then, use trig to find r, and then the formula for centripetal force should give you the speed.

And the 12 has nothing to do with it. 12 is a length, not a force - be careful

Analyze both vertical and horizontal components of the forces on the "man + swing".

Thank you Doc Al when you said the forces on the man and and the swing it hit me :)
