Q- Determine the maximum tension in a string 3m long, supporting a mass of 2Kg, if its released at an angle of 30 degrees to the vertical. (assume vacuum)

The first thing i did was find Fg which is m*g, which equals 2Kg*9.8 =19.6

Then i made a relationship with the angle to find the force of tension which i believed to be the hypotenuse?

Ft = 19.6/sin(30)

= 39.2 N ?
