A 12.0 kg monkey starts to climb a long rope to reach a banana located at a height of 7.00 m. The rope will snap if the tension exceeds 132 N. Calculate the least amount of time the monkey could take to reach the banana without breaking the rope.

2. Relevant equations

F =ma

x = Vot +1/2at2

3. The attempt at a solution

I know I need to use an equation to solve for t. I tried the two above first solving for the acceleration, then plugging that in to solve for the time. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
