What is the tension in the string?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

okay i have figured this much out,

Tsin(16.69) = m (v^2)/ r

T cos 16.69 -mg =0

i dont know how to solve for T though. i know it should be simple math, but i cant figure it out!

i have tried this

r(tsin 16.69) / v^2 = m

and Tcos16.69 / g = m

and then make them equal,

Tcos16.69 / g = r(Tsin16.69)/V^2

but now i am lost
