- Homework Statement
- I was practicing qs. at the end of the chapter and came across this. Example 5 shows a model aeroplane in circular motion at the end of a string. The centripetal force is the tension. Redo Example 5, assuming that there is no upward lift on the plane generated by its wings. Without such lift, the guideline slopes downward due to the weight of the plane. For purposes of significant figures, use 0.900 kg for the mass of the plane, 17.0 m for the length of the guideline, and 19.0 and 38.0 m/s for the speeds.

- Relevant Equations
- I tried resolving its weight into it's components downslope and I think the net force is t-mg.

I don't know where to start with this as I can't visualise a diagram for it. Any help would be appreciated.
