## Homework Statement

A small mass m is suspended from a string of length L. The body revolves in a horizontal circle of radius R with a constant speed v. Find the speed of the body and the period of the revolution.

## Homework Equations

ΣFx = Tx = mV^2/r

Period = (2πr)/V

## The Attempt at a Solution

However, I was told that the velocity is actually √(g*L*Cos(θ)) / tan(θ). Why is my answer incorrect?
