(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A ball of mass m is held by a string of length L and swung in a horizontal circle. The string makes an angle θ with the vertical (as shown).

a. Draw a diagram clearly labeling all forces on the mass.

b. Find T, the amount of time that it takes for the ball to complete one circle in terms of m,L, g, and θ.

c. When θ increases, what happens to T? Justify your answer.
