here's what I know so far by doing a free body diagram.

5cos(30)= y

length y = Sqrt(18.75)

5sin(30) = x

length x = 2.5

R = 3 + 2.5 = 5.5

using the pythagorean thereom we now that

sqrt((2.5)^2 + 18.75) = 5

force y = tcos(30)

force x = tsin(30)

circumference = 2pi(R)

about the forces we know that 5cos(30) = mg

and that tsin(30) = mω^2R

now how do I get rpms from this? what do I solve for?

thanks
