Tension of rope by hanging mass

  1. Nov 5, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A mass of 11 kg is hung on a rope of L = 2.7 meters. It is raised by 90 degrees (a quarter circle) held at rest, then released and it falls due to gravity alone. What is the tension in the rope at the bottom of its path in Newtons?

    What do you think?

    Hint: What forces act on the mass? What is its acceleration?

    Force Diagrams saves lives everyday. Don't forget to use energy equations for Mechanics they are also good for your health :)
