    You'll need to use conservation of energy and Newton's 2nd law (consider centripetal acceleration). Hint for part b: At the top of the motion there is a minimum speed to maintain a taut string.

    the formula PE=KE?

    so the PE when the ball is below the peg has to equal the KE after it hits the peg?
