A string with 2kg mass m on the end is connected to a bar that rotates at a constant rate (theta dot). The string makes a constant angle beta, = 60 degrees relative to the horizontal plane. Find theta dot and the tension force in the string.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I realize this may be very difficult to understand without a picture, but the rotation is in the x y direction I suppose and gravity is acting downward in the Z direction. I'm not really sure how to go about this problem. There's a specific velocity that will give the angle relative to the x axis the 60 degrees but I'm quite stuck, any help would be great.
