I am having a tough time solving this problem where a mass, connected to two strings with equal distance fixed to a stick, rotates around the stick at a given speed and i need to solve for tension in both the upper and lower string.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Looks like this

Thank You for your time

What i really need to know is how the weight vector of the mass is reflected in the tension.
