Tarzan plans to cross a gorge by swinging in an arc from a hanging vine. If his arms are capable of exerting a force of 1400 N on the rope, what is the maximum speed he can tolerate at the lowest point of his swing? His mass is 80 kg and the vine is 4.8 m long?

2. Relevant equations

net force = ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure how to deal with the force of tension in this problem

net force radial direction = m a radial direction = Fr = Ft + Farm - Fg

sense I don't know what the force of tension is in this problem I got down to this

v = ((.06 kg^-1 m)Ft - 37 s^-2 m^2)^(2^-1)

is the force of tension equal to what?
