## Homework Statement

Tarzan swings from a cliff at the end of a 20.0m vine that hangs from a high tree limb. Immediately after Tarzan steps off the cliff, the tension in the vine is 719N and makes an angle of 29.0deg with the vertical. Tarzan's weight is 822N.

What is the magnitude of Tarzan's acceleration immediately after he steps off the cliff?

## Homework Equations

netforce = m*a

## The Attempt at a Solution

netforce =m*a

netforcex = 719cos71

netforcey = 719sin71-822

netforce= sqrt((719cos71)^2+(719sin71-822)^2))

a = 273.88/822

a=0.3m/s^2not sure what i am doing wrong here! >=[
