If a stone is spun around in a vertical circle, is the tension in the string the centripetal force and the force of gravity?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the stone is at the 6 o'clock position, is the tension in the string the centripetal force plus the gravitaional force?

At the twelve o'clock, is it the centripetal force minus the gravitational force?

And at the 3 o'clock position is the tension calculated by a tip to tail vertor diagram using pythagorian theorem?

Thanks
