a ball is whirling on the end of the string L
the max tension is Tbreak
the max velocity is vmax
find an equation for vmaxin m(mass of ball)Tbreak, L and g

@havoc: you will get the most out of these forums if you attempt the problem yourself - then we will know what you are getting stuck on. Otherwise we just end up doing the problem for you and you don't learn as much.

What didn't you understand about the problem?

@bigerst: If you suspect homework - why give so much detail?
Even if it isn't homework, the questioner will still be helped best if you just point them in the right direction where they are lost and let them make the journey ;)

i was getting mixed up while using L and T during trig so i was getting all sorts of weird solutions.
I'll take care from now and will explain my situation completely(i did try it myself)

No worries - it is good that you try things out yourself ... it is better that you tell people what you've tried. That is information we can use to help you and fyi you won't be showing anyone anything they haven't done themselves.

In general, in science, where you make mistakes is often more valuable than where you get things right.
