## Homework Statement

Hey, we have this mechanical bat that is attached to a cord and its flying around in a circle on the ceiling. Here is all the information that I have gathered.

Mass of the bat: 0.1345 kg

1.609 seconds per revolution

length of cord: 0.92 m

height from ceiling: 0.65 m

Here is what it looks like if it helps. I need to find the tension of the cord.
