1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data a man swings from a rope which is 10 feet long. his mass is 80 kg and at the bottom of his swing, he is going 8 m/s. The max tension the rope can take without breaking is 2000 N. Does he make it? 2. Relevant equations Fc = mv^2/r 3. The attempt at a solution first i had to convert the feet to meters (3.05m). then i think the way to solve it is to first figure out the centripetal force generated by swinging - this would be (80 kg)(8)^2/(3.05 m) = 1678 N. does this mean hes ok because the tension in the string doesnt exceed the 2000 N limit or do I need to include his weight in the problem?
