Starting with the tetherball analogy: Assuming the force would be applied to spinning the base of the tetherball pole what amount of horse power is needed to get the tetherball up to a speed of 36 miles per hour with these properties; tetherball poll (2 kilograms), string (1 meter) and ball (1.9 kilograms)?

At constant speed what is the max g-force?

If the process was reversed, 36 mph to zero, what would be the max g-force?
