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

A pendulum is 0.8 m long and the bob has a mass of 1.0 kg. At the bottom of its swing, the bob's speed is 1.3 m/s. What is the tension in the string at the bottom of the swing?

2. Relevant equations

F=m((v^2)/r)

3. The attempt at a solution

F= 1.0kg((1.3 m/s^2)/.08)

F= 2.1125

--------------------

I must be using the wrong equation or numbers.. Any help is appreciated.
