swinging on a vine??
Consider the example of Tarzan swinging on a vine. Let the length be L = 10 m, and Tarzan
has a mass of M = 70 kg. The figure shows him swinging through the bottom of the arc,
where at that instant he has a speed of 13.0 m/s. What is the tension in the vine?
A. 686 N
B. 823 N
C. 1869 N
D. 1153 N
E. 1335 N
is there an easier way to solve this instead of using the angular momentum principle?? if so how??
