- Homework Statement:
- 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 1500 N on the vine, what is the maximum speed he can tolerate at the lowest point of his swing? His mass is 80 kg, and the vine is 4.5 m long.
- Relevant Equations:
- Fmax= mvmax^2/r
T= m*vmax^2/r 1500 = (80kg)vmax^2/4.5
